The University of Nebraska’s Holland Computing Center has chosen Panasas to anchor its new 1150 node cluster. Unveiled last week, the new cluster ranks in the Top50 of the Top500. The machine will also soon receive an upgrade to over 60 TFLOPS.
We see this as a tremendous opportunity to advance the research
capabilities of the Institute (PKI) to meet the growing and emerging
demands of the university community as well as those of our business
partners solving national and global issues,” said John Callahan, director
of technical infrastructure for the Peter Kiewit Institute and co-founder
of the HCC. “Panasas parallel storage and the PanFS parallel file system
will bring a level of I/O performance and scalability to our facility that
will place Holland Computing Center among the most elite in the world.”
