UI Blue Waters Supercomputer (http://vimeo.com/37806517) from UI-7 News (http://vimeo.com/ui7news) on Vimeo (http://vimeo.com).

In this video, Sam Kargol from UI-7 News interviews Klaus Schulten (http://www.ks.uiuc.edu/~kschulte/) and about â??early science systemâ?? deployment of the Blue Waters (http://www.ncsa.illinois.edu/BlueWaters/) supercomputer at NCSA. Cray has installed approximately 15 percent of the hardware for the system, which is expected to be fully deployed in late 2012.

Blue Waters will be composed of more than 235 Cray XE6 cabinets based on the recently announced AMD Opteronâ?˘ 6200 Series processor (formerly code-named â??Interlagosâ??) and more than 30 cabinets of a future version of the recently announced Cray XK6 supercomputer with Nvidia Tesla GPU computing capability.
