All fun…

Compare this with NVIDIA – http://www.nvidia.com/object/tesla_build_your_own.html

May be the best thing is go for the well structured and beautifully engineered 1 TFLOP machines using the NVIDIA GPUs.  The power consumption is whopping 1,200+v, in that case. For cubieboard, the power consumption is less than 100 volts… for this small configuration, a simple linear calculation points out. It can be flexibly be built especially for companies that are starting to do, using open source systems.  This is a minimalist configuration. I see future possibilities. At least this can be a great test system.

For GFLOPS see: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/FLOPS
Accordingly, it looks like the 8GFLOPS is a serious underestimate.

One important point is that you can build a hadoop cluster but to get value out of your big data you need to hire a 100K analyst, at the least!

Anybody interested in working with me to build and support HADOOP Clusters for our clients?
