"IBM is helping the University of New Mexico build what it
claims will be the world's fastest Linux supercomputer. It is a
cluster of 256 rack-mounted, dual-processor IBM Netfinity servers
running Linux, and it is able to execute 375 billion floating-point
operations per second."
"Later this year, IBM intends to market a packaged Linux cluster
for commercial applications, officials said."
"According to IBM, the machine, which will be called Los
Lobos, will be the 24th-most-powerful computer in the world. It
will cost just over $1.5 million. The clustering software is
based in part on the open-source Beowulf code and other open-source
projects, including IBM-developed software for installing,
monitoring and managing clusters. Los Lobos is scheduled to be
operational by this summer."
