IBM Builds Europe's fastest supercomputer in Germany

,----[ Quote ]
| IBM THINKS THE GERMANS are just über and plan to build Europe's most süper 
| powerful züper computer at the Forschungszentrum Juelich (FZJ), by upgrading 
| an existing machine to petaflops level.  
| Funding for the groß BlueGene/P cluster machine will be channeled in from the 
| German Ministry of Research and the Ministry of Research of 
| Northrhine-Westfalia  


BlueGene runs GNU/Linux.

| Skipping ahead, Linux HPC clusters now dominate the market. We often hear
| about the “big ones”, but many small individual or group clusters still
| exist. I believe, the rapid and disruptive growth was due to the low barriers
| to entry. You could play with “it” before you committed big resources to a
| larger system. A simple and effective “try before you buy” proposition.
