IW: IBM And University Of New Mexico Open Linux Supercluster Briefing Center

“IBM today announced the opening of the industry’s first Linux
supercluster briefing center for customers developing scalable
applications on Linux systems. The briefing center will be based at
the University of New Mexico’s (UNM) Albuquerque High Performance
Computing Center (AHPCC), and complements the existing briefing
facility at the Maui High Performance Computing Center (Maui
HPCC).”

The new briefing center will assist customers in planning
their Linux and Linux clusters plans with IBM, and allow them to
benchmark and “test-drive” key applications.
The UNM
supercluster, called Los Lobos, consists of 256 IBM Netfinity
servers (512 Intel IA-32 processors running at 733 MHz(1)) that
collectively provide peak performance of about 375 gigaflops. IBM
will engage petroleum and manufacturing companies, the scientific
and technical community, financial institutions, and higher
education and government institutions who are deploying high
performance computing solutions with Linux. Customers can draw on
IBM and UNM’s experience, skill and resources to help meet their
technical needs.”
