Ultimate Church Webserver : Cray T3E-1200E

Forget everything I’ve ever said about beowulf clusters, I’ve changed my mind and am namin’ and claimin’ this e-Bay offering of a Cray T3E-1200E Supercomputer System as any good word-o-faith disciple would. Sure, my faith is weak for prayin’ for a ‘used‘ system, still this bad-boy was installed in 1999 and used until October 2004, when Cray personnel de-installed the system under contract with the direction that the system would be re-installed.

The Cray T3E-1200E™ system was the first supercomputer to sustain one teraflop (1 trillion calculations per second) on a real-world application, boasts of 30GB of total memory, delivers peak performance of 134 Gflop/s and requires the installation services of a plumber.

  1. Arr, arr, arrrrrrrrgggggg!

  2. I think it can better be called as “Ultimate Webserver for chruches” instead of “Ultimate Church Webserver”

    Using this monster as webserver for a single church is simply a waste. And computing power is not the main focus of a web server. The bandwidth is.

    It was a joke okay? Stinkin’ Misraelites can’t even have fun fantisizing over a Cray … what’s this world coming to?!

  4. That’s awesome!

    It’s sad now that PC’s can hold twice as much space now :)

    Cheers!

  5. I didn’t know that PC’s commonly came with 60Gb of ram now… and I thought that 1.5 Gbs was good.

    If you read the specs this is still a good machine. However a few seperate

  7. Hey, it wasn’t purchased and has been relisted. At a lower cost. Pretty soon, they might be happy to donate it to the Work of the Lord for a handsome tax receipt.

  8. I bought my wife a 7′-4” Bozendorfer (the world’s best piano, folks), because she is a concert-level pianist. Now that I see a Cray-T3E available that is CHEAPER than the Bozendorfer – and not much heavier nor much larger – I am having second thoughts. I mentioned this to her, and now she is having second thoughts……

  9. I knew you’d like it…

  10. Yeah, but it is still a Cray. I mean, how cool is that? It would be funny to know how much it was installed for.
