Computing Power in Formula 1


March 15, 2007 4:37 pm





For me as an engineer working out of the European Support Center, getting to BrainShare often also means I’ll spend a week working out of our Provo office in the week prior to that. This week I spend quite some time with the people testing ZENworks Configuration Management, it has been great to see how much progress we’ve made since we shipped our first beta at the end of January. Beta 2 is looking good and I’m looking forward to show this to some customers at BrainShare next week.

Downside of my stay here in Provo will be that I won’t be able to see the Formula 1 race in Melbourne, Sunday is the start of the season and it will be interesting to see if the BMW Sauber team is able to make some progress this year. Last December they had a new supercomputer installed to do calculations on their aerodynamics, it’s quite impressive to see the computing power they use to do these calculations (rank 60 in the Supercomputer TOP500 list), and yes, this system has some SUSE Linux as a base OS 🙂

If someone knows a stream on the Internet that shows the race in Melbourne, let me know in the comments…

    dude, you get to a hotel that has cable TV.
    Stay up extra late Saturday night and it will be on live.

    Thanks for the tip! I’ve got TV at my room, will have a look to see if Speedtv is available.
