The Supercomputer Project involves linking over 200 Pentium-2 - Pentium-4 computers together in a parallel processing mode. Successful completion of this project by Global could place the company in a position of having one of the top 500 super computers in the world. The projected time line for this project is 1 year. After that time computing time could be rented out at fair market value.

While the semi-annual Top 500 list of supercomputer sites has in recent years been dominated by IBM Corp, SGI Inc, and Cray Inc at the very high end, Sun has been working hard to build its profile in the HPC market, particularly among genomics and other bioinformatics firms that cannot match the level of funding enjoyed by governmental and research institutions with the their sophisticated weapons and physics simulations, but who nonetheless need to acquire lots of computing power to do their work.

Linux cluster supercomputer uses Infiniband 14:21 Tuesday 30th October 2001

Using a subset of the Beowulf clustering technology, 17 of IBM's Netfinity servers containing 36 Pentium II chips and running an off-the-shelf copy of Linux matched the scalability and performance of a Cray supercomputer. The IBM system executed a computer graphics-rendering application called the PovRay benchmark

The Beowulf Project

Alhazred The project's aim is to build a scalable Beowulf-like parallel computer using the newest SymbioSys GNU/Linux distribution and cheap hardware.

The Do-It-Yourself Supercomputer Scientists have found a cheaper way to solve tremendously difficult computational problems: connect ordinary PCs so that they can work together

While our first Beowulf-style parallel computer isn't built out of the most impressive hardware, we got tired of fighting for funding and went ahead with what we could find. Much like the classic Tale of Stone Soup , many individuals contributed to the existing machine*. Because of a complete lack of funding, we used surplus personal computers donated by individuals from ORNL , the Procurement Dept., Y-12, and K-25, to build a parallel computer system which uses public domain compilers and message passing libraries. This system was built at literally no cost.

Parallel Computing Powerhouse Many of the complex problems in this world were once impossible to solve due to the incredibly long time it takes to solve complex mathematical formulas. KiloClusters dramatically reduce computational processing time in a parallel computing environment by providing the power of up to thousands of computers working in unison. Distributed Computing KiloClusters are not only effective in parallel computing environments. They are also a reliable choice in batch or distributed computing environments. Each cluster can be configured to operate the batch software of your choice. Once installed, KiloClusters act in unison with the server, breaking down large complex problems into smaller batch sizes thus dramatically reducing computational time.
