Enterprise Linux Today: IBM Delivers New Itanium-Based Systems

May 29, 2001, 17:30 (2 Talkback[s])
"IBM today announced new Intel Itanium-based eServer and IntelliStation workstations which will form a new Linux supercluster at the National Center for Supercomputing Applications (NCSA) at the University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign. Capable of 1 trillion calculations per second, a cluster of 160 new IBM Itanium-based systems will be the most powerful Linux supercluster in academia.

Scientists will use NCSA's IBM eServer clusters to study a wide range of research problems, from how gas flows over surfaces at supersonic speeds to simulations of black hole collisions, which demonstrate principles of Einstein's General Relativity Theory. The new Itanium-based eServer cluster will complement the cluster of 512 eServer x330's installed earlier this year.
