Virginia Tech’s decision to migrate its supercomputer to Xserve G5s will make the installation more attractive to the federal agencies and organizations negotiating with the university for its supercomputer technology, according to TechWeb. A Virginia Tech spokesperson said the university and Apple have received “a number of inquiries” from federal agencies—including the Argonne National Lab, the National Security Agency, and NASA—to use the university’s installation or its supercomputer-kit technology to build their own supercomputers.
