IBM has announced that Georgia State has just plugged in a new IBM Cluster 1350 to keep its POWER5+ company. The new system has 320 Intel Xeon quadcore processors and 18 TB of storage. The system was acquired through a parternship between IBM and the Southeastern Universities Research Association (SURA), and its 3 TFLOPS of capability will be made available through the SURAgrid.
The new IBM System Cluster 1350 will help meet … increasing demand. As researchers gain access to more capacity and capability, they naturally are expanding their goals, driving demand. Researchers in chemistry, biology, molecular dynamics, computer science, climate modeling and political science will be among the new machine’s first users. The Cluster 1350 will be added to Georgia State’s high-end IBM System p5 575 supercomputer to offer scientists a range of in-house computing capabilities.
