Meet the community keeping obsolete supercomputers alive

Nearly 30 years after Silicon Graphics ruled the high-performance computing roost, its supercomputers have found themselves a new home with a small community full of enthusiasts – some of whom weren’t even alive during the company’s heyday.

SGI machines are definitely on my list of platforms to sink my teeth into in the future. I don’t think I’ll be focusing on these more eccentric supercomputer-type workstations, but they are fascinating nonetheless. I’m very glad there’s an active community of people keeping these machines working.
