> (Not a cluster!) just images of the internal/external layout of Sun's
> new Linux-on-Intel box that bioteam is eval'ing. Also shots of 'Sun
> Linux 5.0' installing. All in all not super exciting unless one has a
> particular interest in the LX50 hardware although I'd love to know if
> people can figure out which contract manufacturer is stamping these
> for Sun as the chassis looks super familiar :)
> (2) http://bioteam.net/gallery/HarvardStats
> 20-cpu Linux compute farm using Dell hardware. All nodes attached via
> GigE thanks to onboard 1000-TX nics on the PowerEdge 1650 nodes.
> over the last 2 days for the Department of Statistics at Harvard
> University. Running Sun GridEngine 5.3p2 right now and will mostly be
> used for running internally-developed software plus some common
> informatics applications. The compute nodes have dual 80gig IDE
> and we will be experimenting with Linux software raid mirroring on a
> partition or two so as to get maximum IO on local disk. This is
> the head node + Dell's general reputation having a really slow
> performing line of PERC RAID controllers means that the head node is
> going to be a performance bottleneck if it gets thrashed with NFSv3
> fileservices duties.
