Video: Cloud and GPUs

Just was getting some thoughts out about using GPGPUs (nVidia’s Tesla and Fermi products, ATI’s FireStream) for handling some of the menial cloud-based operations (metadata calc, metadata location servicing, offload, etc.) that we have as part of any type of cloud file system.

So, what are your thoughts?  The capacity to further collapse x86 commodity platforms by utilizing the extreme amount of processing capability present within these GPGPUs and coupling optimized OpenCL or CUDA routines into the standard CFS processing stack.

Just something to think about.
