    The Secret Lives of Supercomputers
    Posted by Ken Farmer, Wednesday August 13 2008 @ 01:31PM EDT

    TechNewsWorld: Supercomputers able to carry out enormous amounts of calculations per second have long been tied to some rather heady tasks -- playing humans in chess and modeling genomes, for instance. But as costs have fallen, businesses and government organizations have turned to supercomputers to solve all sorts of practical problems, from evaluating nuclear warheads without detonating them to designing the perfect potato chip.

    Since the first supercomputers came online in the 1960s and '70s, they have earned a reputation as high-powered workhorses helping researchers conduct complex calculations.

    Typically found at major universities and research facilities, the massive machines -- which at one time could occupy more than an acre of space in a data center Rackspace now offers green hosting solutions at the same cost without sacrificing performance. Make the eco-friendly choice. -- were often used in science: quantum mechanical physics, molecular modeling or mapping the human genome. Some jobs were less esoteric: IBM's Latest News about IBM Deep Blue earned fame in the chess world as an opponent of grand master Garry Kasparov.
