    Vendor Press Releases
    If you're a vendor and want to get your press releases in front of the Linux HPC community, sumbit them here...
    HP Direct
    If you don't know about HP Direct you should check it out. I've found this program very useful. They setup a website for you with 5-18% discount and you get assigned a sales rep that actually answers the phone. They even have a parts number search engine. More info...

    If you're developing Linux on Itanium you need to visit this site daily. Join the federation and help the effort as well as take advantage of the software starting to populate the site.
    $39,500 cluster gets over 471 GFLOPS
    Posted by Hank Dietz (Friday August 22 2003 @ 05:49PM EDT) [ ]
    At the University of Kentucky, KASY0, a Linux cluster of 128+4 AMD Athlon XP 2600+ nodes, achieved 471 GFLOPS on 32-bit Linpack. At a cost of less than $39,500, that makes it the first supercomputer to break $100/GFLOPS. It also is the new record holder for POV-Ray 3.5 render speed. The reason this "Beowulf" is so cost-effective is a new network architecture that achieves high performance using standard hardware: the asymmetric Sparse Flat Neighborhood Network (SFNN).
