Penguin Computing announced this week that they’ve installed an 800-node core super at the University of Pittsburgh’s Center for Simulation and Modeling.
The university has added a powerful new Penguin Intel Nehalem-based 800-core Linux cluster to an existing 116-node cluster and integrated the two using Penguin’s Scyld cluster management software. The Penguin hardware and software solution significantly extends the compute power at the University of Pittsburgh while also providing more efficient and productive cluster management across the entire environment.
According to Penguin CEO Charlie Wuischpard, U Pitt has also acquired acquired a Penguin nVidia GPU system. If I’m able to get details on that system, I’ll update this post.
