Welcome to the information source for the IBM pSeries cluster
This cluster of quad processor Power3-II workstations is made possible
via a Shared University Research (SUR) grant from IBM to Iowa State
University as well as a grants from the USDOE MICS program and the Air Force
Office of Scientific Research. It is a joint venture
of the ISU Department of Chemistry and the Ames
Laboratory Scalable Computing Laboratory. The primary purposes of the
cluster are to develop efficient methods for performing parallel
computations on state-of-the-art clusters, and to apply these methods
to grand challenge problems in chemistry and related fields.
Below is a picture of the cluster as it now stands.
