     A texas based company by the name of sun microsystems announced that its new hardware will power a new supercomputer named "Ranger". The supercomputer will be the largest ever built, weighing in with 62,976 CPU cores, 125 terabytes of memory, 1.7 petabytes of disk space, and 504 teraflops of performance. The "Ranger" alone tips the scale with a cost of around $30 million in hardware alone and an additional $29 million for the maintenance and staffing to watch over everything. As if that weren't enough, the entirely new cluster will demand three megawatts of power and will cost the university of Texas one million dollars per year to keep humming. The "Ranger" will most likely be the largest and fastest supercomputer in the world, beating out the reigning champion, IBM's BlueGene computer.
