More on the PSC & SGI Deal
Still nothing official on the SGI & PSC falling-out we reported on last week. From SGI’s PR firm gave us the following statement:
SGI remains committed to the HPC community and in fact still has a business relationship with the Pittsburg Supercomputing Center. This means that all of the business dealings are considered internal and confidential, and SGI cannot publicly comment on status of any deal at this time. I am sure you understand.
So what does this mean? Well, it’s possible that SGI & PSC are still negotiating, either lowering the final performance (sub 1-Petaflop) or raising the amount they are willing to pay. Either way, we hope to hear more from them.
