Bull Launches 'Green' Supercomputer

Bull has launched a new supercomputer called the bullx, a supercomputer that uses blade servers and water cooling to be green and fast. The bullx is a very sophisticated computer with many new additions and green technology. In the article the publisher explains one of the key green attributes to the bullx is its water cooling system, which is up to 75 percent more efficient than using air cooling. Experts also say the bullx comes with integrated protection against short bursts electrical power, which means customers don't need to use uninterruptible power supplies, that make their computers less energy efficient. The bullx is not for the faint hearted. The bullx targets high-performance computing in the government sector, at automotive and aerospace companies, at oil and gas companies, and in the financial services area.
Overall I believe the use of a green supercomputer is a great idea. If you think about it there are so many companies out there that use supercomputers and if you could start having them adopt the concept of "go green" then hopefully it would start to have an impact on the general public and lead to the beginning of a new era. As we all know we need to start trying to become more independent of oil and using other sources of energy. Hopefully these green supercomputers is a start of something big.  So lets start cleaning up this world and becoming more energy efficient.
