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.
>> @goafrit nimbix offer their own cloud that includes Multicore processors, GPU's and Dsp's and i believe they are working on adding FPGA computing(using convey) for their system.
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.
