I guess I am officially out of the high-end distributed computing game now. My last multi-processor system, a 2P SB-E machine, was shut down last Saturday and disassembled Sunday. I really just needed the 1 TB hard drive out of it for my NAS/backup system, but I ended up shutting it down completely since I hadn’t actually used this box for months. It will make some [H] DC’er a nice machine, and the water-cooling stuff will probably go to another [H] DC’er.
This ends an era for me that started in early 2010. Perhaps I will pick it up again somewhere down the road. For now, I am going to focus my time and money on other things.
