To give you an idea of how big HECToR will be. Each cabinet is the size of a refrigerator roughly.

FYI. HECToR stands for High-End Computing Terascale Resource. It’ll start at 60 Teraflops and be upgraded in two years to 250 Teraflops. Yep, that’s 250,000,000,000,000 mathematical instructions every second.

Here is a picture that kind of shows how big each cabinet is.
