"The Department of Energy's Argonne National Laboratory
announced today that it is working with IBM and VA Linux Systems to
build "Chiba City" -- the largest supercomputing cluster dedicated
to highly scalable open source software development. The 512-CPU
Linux cluster will be opened to the U.S. research community,
including universities, laboratories and industry."
"The Chiba City Project, conceived by Argonne's Mathematics
and Computer Science Division, will be Argonne's most powerful
supercomputer. The project will help advance the use of
state-of-the-art Linux clusters based on affordable industry
standard components in high-performance computing. The cluster
comprises 256 2-CPU computational servers from VA Linux Systems,
and IBM Netfinity servers for cluster management, file storage and
"The Chiba City cluster provides a flexible development
environment for scalable open source software in four key
categories: cluster management, high-performance systems software
(file systems, schedulers and libraries), scientific visualization,
and distributed computing."
