We Won a Sun Fire T1000 in
This web site documents my experience evaluating a T1000 system
obtained from their Try
and Buy Program using a constructive
approach to integer factorization in the RSA Factoring
Challenge as the load under test. Comparisons are made with execution
on a Dell PowerEdge 400SC Pentium IV and a MicroCenter PowerSpec 6640
Athlon64, including performance, acquisition and operational cost.
My thanks to Sun Microsystems for letting me, a little, one person shop,
running out of his basement (sorry, the garage was taken :-)), have this
opportunity. I really learned a lot.
I apologize in advance for the simplicity (hand jammed HTML) of this site -
making a fancy web site just wasn't a priority...
