Comment I wants? (Score 1) 127

My lab will soon be building a computer or cluster for bioinformatics. Would something like this be appropriate / scaleable for gene microarray analysis, clustering algorithm tasks, etc? We need the capability to work with datasets in the 400 GB range, and with many permutations, but the specific datapoints are not large. Any suggestions or input would be much appreciated...

Many people are unenthusiastic about their work.
