Submission + - 1.21 PetaFLOPS (RPeak) Supercomputer created on Cloud

An anonymous reader writes: In honor of Doc Brown, Great Scott! Ars has an interesting article about a 1.21 PetaFLOPS (RPeak) supercomputer created on Amazon EC2 Spot Instances. From HPC software company Cycle Computing's blog, it ran Professor Mark Thompson's research to find new, more efficient materials for solar cells. As Professor Thompson puts it:

, "If the 20th century was the century of silicon materials, the 21st will be all organic. The question is how to find the right material without spending the entire 21st century looking for it."

TheReg points out this 'virty super's low cost. Will cloud democratize access to HPC for research?
