But you can use cloud computing to accomplish some tasks which supercomputing does by using distributed processors in parallel which cloud offers you. I think they are related in how you can use them to accomplish tasks.

What do you mean Nimbix offers cloud that includes multicore processors? What is thar relevant to know the processors and GPUs in cloud since it is about your accessing it and not what they have used to host it. An explanation??

that is about $420 per processor - so about the price of a low end laptop (or an Ipad) for something with quite a lot more oomph. You can pay anywhere between $200 and $2000 just for a Xeon processor (admittedly in somewhat lower volumes!). I wonder what the spec of the processor's is.

And of course that much RAM, cabinet, disk and cabling etc does not come cheap either

Supercomputing and Cloudcomputing are two different terms leading to different technologies and requirements. Generaly heavy processing speeds algorithms needs supercomputers mailly used in researches at the universities except few exceptional cases. Where as cloudcomputing is used for data coloboration and integrations among many users mainly.

These are amazing systems, and multi-petaflop systems out there now too!

>> Nimbix and CycleCloud

Did they build the supercomputer that power the cloud computing themselves? I mean are these two firms supercomputer vendors?

Nimbix and CycleCloud are offering supercomputing  capabilities, whil running on the amazon cloud. But in some cases it's cheaper to buy than rent.

BTW , i believe that Google and Amazon compute center are the largest comouters ever build.

To say that Andy Weir's The Martian is an exploration of math, Mars, and feces is a slight simplification. I doubt that the author would have any complaints, though.
