HPCVL is pleased to announce the installation of eight Sun SPARC Enterprise M9000 systems. Each system has sixty-four 2.5 2 GHz quad-core SPARC 64 chips and 2 TB of RAM. The cluster has a TPP of over 20 TFLOPS of performance and will help research ers tackle new problems currently out of reach. For more information, check out our hardware page or Sun's website.

HPCVL has entered into a Memorandum of Understanding with the Center for Computing and Communication at the RWTH Aachen University in Germany. The partnership was developed through the Sun Microsystems Center of Excellence program. The Memorandum has helped build a framework for the exchange of common experience and research related to high performance compu ting, and build a strong relationship between the two organizations. As a part of that effort, Aachen University experts on HP C methodologies gave workshops as a part of HPCS 2009 in Kingston in June 2009.
