Submission + - Blue Waters Supercomputing Data Center Unveiled (datacenterknowledge.com)

1sockchuck writes: The Blue Waters Supercomputer was unveiled Wednesday at the University of Illinois, along with the new energy-efficient data center that will house it. Blue Waters, which will become operational in 2011, contains more than 300,000 cores, a petabyte of memory, 10 petabytes of storage, and half an exabyte of archive storage. The National Petascale Computing Facility features a six-foot raised floor to house over 81 miles of cabling. An interesting wrinkle: the facility will operate without generators or UPS systems.
