NASA has upgraded its SGI Origin supercomputer. The supercomputer has 1,024 processors, which are being bumped up to faster MIPS R14000A microprocessors running at 600MHz, SGI said Tuesday. NASA is using the computer to study aeronautics, earth sciences and life sciences. The upgrade boosts the system from 819.2 gigaflops--that is, 819.2 billion calculations per second--to 1228.8 gigaflops of theoretical peak speed, said John Ziebarth, chief of the advanced supercomputing division at NASA Ames Research Center.
BEA Systems and Lockheed Martin are teaming up to target government accounts for information technology services and support. Lockheed already derives a substantial portion of its revenue from government business; in 2001, government accounted for $18 billion of the company's total $24 billion in revenue. Under the new deal, each of Lockheed's four principal business areas--Aeronautics, Space, Systems Integration and Technology Services--will have access to BEA's application infrastructure technology and products. The two companies have also agreed to jointly develop new business proposals and to train and certify Lockheed technical personnel as BEA architects.
