In 2003 SEP started a Linux Cluster Initiative with some of its industrial sponsors. This initiative proved funds for three additional Beowulf clusters from [[http://www.californiadigital.com/| California Digital ]]. The first cluster, bought in 2003, consisted of 40 dual 2.4 xeon processors with 2 GBs of ram per node. For applications that are memory intensive in 2003 we also bought an 8 node, dual 2.4 xeon cluster with 6 gigabytes of RAM (the maximum practical memory for a 32 bit chip). Our memory needs continue to grow so in January 2005 we bought a 32 node, dual Xeon64 cluster. Half of the nodes with 4 GB of ram, the other half with 8 GB. | In 2003 SEP started a Linux Cluster Initiative with some of its industrial sponsors.
