Cheers, cheers for old Notre Dame! News hit the wires this week of new 490 node cluster at the Center for Research Computing (CRC) at Notre Dame. The nodes are HP ProLiant DL165 G6 servers, with 6 core AMD processors and connected with GigaBit Ethernet. HP SCI Elite Partner, Matrix Integration, delivered the HP Cluster Platform 4000.
This continues a wave of new deployments of HPC clusters across universities and colleges. Last year, for instance, HP delivered a 1000+ node HP Cluster Platform 3000BL to the Minnesota Supercomuting Institute. Read here for news on that system.
