"The University of New Mexico and IBM are teaming up to build
the world's fastest Linux-based supercomputer.
"Named "Los Lobos", the new supercomputer is scheduled to be
fully operational by the summer."
"It's built from many smaller, industry standard computers -- 64
of IBM Netfinity 256 servers, specifically."
"The Netfinity servers are linked together using special
clustering software and high-speed networking hardware, which
causes the separate units to act as one computer, delivering a
processing speed of 375 gigaflops, or 375 billion operations per
"Although its creators believe Los Lobos is the fastest
Linux supercomputer, it will only rank 24th on the list of the top
500 fastest supercomputers."
