Gordon employs a vast amount of flash memory to help speed solutions hamstrung by slower spinning disk memory. "Supernodes" exploit virtual shared-memory software to create large shared-memory systems that reduce solution times and yield results for applications that tax even the most advanced supercomputers.
Gordon is funded by the National Science Foundation and is housed at the San Diego Supercomputer Center at the University of California, San Diego.
