IBM and ASTRON, the Netherlands Institute for Radio Astronomy, will unveil a prototype high-density, 64-bit microserver CPU placed on a 133 x 55 mm board running Linux. The partners are building the microserver as part of the DOME project, which is tasked with building an IT roadmap for the Square Kilometer Array, an international consortium to build the world's largest and most sensitive radio telescope. Scientists estimate that the processing power required to operate the telescope will be equal to several millions of today's fastest computers.
IBM scientist Ronald Luijten (@ronaldgadget) will present the microserver in English from ASTRON's offices in Dwingeloo, The Netherlands.
