Re: Best Workstation
Have you checked out some of the clusters in a box from Orion
They seem very cost effective. The idea seems sound and possibly ideal
for what you're looking for. I have a contact there if you're
interested though I've never used their cluster workstations machines

Maybe one of you is doing the same research as me and can share some
Well, the fact is that I'm planning to get a new Workstation for one of
our Labs doing computational fluid dynamics stuff. Got two options, a
dual Sun Opteron (I could easyly run Debian on it) *W2100z or a dual
UltraSPARC III (Solaris only) *Blade 2500, same memory (4GiB) and same
storage (2x73GiB U320).
What would be the best 'bang-of-the-buck' for my labs' necessity?
Straight horse power.
Hope someone could bring some ideas!
Thanks in advance,
PS: Not going after a cluster because of a very tight budget.
