You’ve heard of “cash for clunkers” as it relates to trading in that tired old minivan. But what about that outdated computing system used for high-end engineering work? Cray just announced its own take on the federal government’s program, launching a buy-back initiative that lets organizations trade in their old clusters or workstation towards the purchase of new Cray supercomputer.
Under Cray’s “cash for clusters” the program, companies can swap out their own workstations and clusters from a variety of vendors, including leaders like SGI, HP and Sun, and Cray will provide some trade-in allowance towards the purchase of new Cray system.
By experimenting with the photovoltaic reaction in solar cells, researchers at MIT have made a breakthrough in energy efficiency that significantly pushes the boundaries of current commercial cells on the market.
We looked at a number of sources to determine this year's greenest cars, from KBB to automotive trade magazines to environmental organizations. These 14 cars emerged as being great at either stretching fuel or reducing carbon footprint.
A quick look into the merger of two powerhouse 3D printing OEMs and the new leader in rapid prototyping solutions, Stratasys. The industrial revolution is now led by 3D printing and engineers are given the opportunity to fully maximize their design capabilities, reduce their time-to-market and functionally test prototypes cheaper, faster and easier. Bruce Bradshaw, Director of Marketing in North America, will explore the large product offering and variety of materials that will help CAD designers articulate their product design with actual, physical prototypes. This broadcast will dive deep into technical information including application specific stories from real world customers and their experiences with 3D printing. 3D Printing is
