Submission + - Hopkins to build data analysis super machine (idg.com.au)

angry tapir writes: "Disregarding the supercomputing community's insatiable thirst for FLOPS (floating point operations per second), the Baltimore-based Johns Hopkins University is configuring its new machine to achieve the maximum number of IOPS (I/O operations per second) instead. The novel design will be better suited to the kind of data-mining-oriented scientific workloads processed by today's supercomputers, argues Alexander Szalay, a computer scientist and astrophysicist at Johns Hopkins' Institute for Data Intensive Engineering and Science."
