Sweet Time Lapse Video Shows Construction of NCI Supercomputer

Maximum PC: We missed this one when it was first posted in mid-December, which is our way of saying we know this is old news, but it's also really cool. It's a 90-second time lapse video showning the construction of the Fujitsu Primergy high-performance supercomputer at the National Computational Infrastructure (NCI), which was completed late last year. It's now located at the Australian National University. (PC hardware, supercompter)

that's how you build em, those server cabinets look like they are 42U in size, assuming they are all blade servers at 6U, that's 7 maxed out blade servers per cabinet... dam they had fun making this.

its a shame it wont be used to push the boundaries of reality and only placing 24th on the super computer list

Id like 1 cabinet in my house thats all id ask for.
