Home Brew Supercomputer

The legendary Cray-1 computer costs over a million dollars (www.cray1.com). Instead of buying an expensive equipment for computational analysis of proteomic data, a group of researchers at Duke build their own super computer for $8,000 with faster computational speed and more storage space. See that attached figure for some specification and comparison between Cray-1 and their Home-Brew Supercomputer
