Terascale Clusters: Experiences and Challenges
Greg Lindahl,HPTI

Many of us wonder if commodity clusters can scale large enough to attack
the biggest problems. Terascale systems have significant problems which
are not present in smaller systems. Reliability, systems administration,
usability, and I/O are all much more difficult problems than in a 64 cpu
cluster. This talk will explore the challenges of terascale systems, and
will relate experiences with the 800 Gigaflop Forecast Systems Lab
AlphaLinux cluster, and Sandia National Labs CPlant cluster.
