$30 Million Deal Signed Between Sun and Australian Meteorologists [21561]
For One of the Largest HPC Environments in Southern Hemisphere

A $30 million deal between Sun and the Australian Bureau of Meteorology (BOM) and the Australian National University (ANU) is expected to create one of the largest high-performance supercomputer (HPC) environments in the Southern Hemisphere with two Sun Constellation systems installed at each site running an open source software stack. The HPC environments will host more than 2500 Sun Blade server modules based on the new Intel "Nehalem" Xeon processor. Sun reports that this is a first for weather forecasting.

Sun to Provide Infrastructure for South Africa's Largest Supercomputer [21527]
Hybrid Architecture to Provide 27 TeraFLOPS of Peak Computing Power

South Africa's largest HPC environment at the Centre for High Performance Computing (CHPC) in Cape Town will offer 27 teraflops - or 27 trillion floating point operations per second - of performance supported by Sun hardware and software solutions, including massive SPARC-based servers. Sun, along with local partners Eclipse Networks and Breakpoint Solutions, will provide the infrastructure for Phase II of this world-class high performance computing facility.

A Look at pNFS as a Tool for Standardizing Storage Clusters [21325]
Scalable Performance with pNFS as a Standardized Extension to NFSv4

Garth Goodson et al. have authored an introduction to standardizing storage clusters using the pNFS (parallel NFS) protocol as part of the NFSv4.1 specification to bridge the gap between current NFS protocols (versions 2, 3, and 4) and parallel cluster file system interfaces. While current NFS protocols force clients to access all files on a given file-system volume from a single server node (which can become a bottleneck for scalable performance), pNFS as a standardized extension to NFSv4 provides clients with scalable end-to-end performance and the flexibility to interoperate with a variety of clustered storage service architectures.
