"IBM Singapore today announced that two leading research
organizations -- the Institute of High Performance Computing (IHPC)
and the Singapore-MIT Alliance (SMA) will build two Linux clusters
using a total of 100 IBM eServer xSeries servers. The system at SMA
is expected to be among the largest in Asia and students in both
Singapore and the United States will be allowed computing time on
this cluster to bolster their knowledge of Linux-based
"The 70-server system at SMA, a global partnership in graduate
education between the Massachusetts Institute of Technology, the
National University of Singapore and Nanyang Technological
University will be put to work on various graduate research
projects. Students from all three universities will be given access
to its computing power to solve various computationally intensive
problems that require sophisticated computer modeling. The ultimate
goal of the alliance is to train students in high performance
computing techniques, increasing the pool of highly trained Linux
IT workers in Singapore."
"The second cluster, a 30-server Linux systems at IHPC will be
used by Singapore-based companies to develop improved business
processes with the ultimate goal of bringing better products to
market more quickly and cheaply."
