Brief description In partnership with a local computer company this project will develop cost effective cluster computing solutions assembled from off-the-shelf parts for $50,000-$200,000. This price range is currently relatively poorly serviced by the multinational computer vendors, who tend to focus on the high density compute systems necessary for very large cluster systems. As a consequence the development of high performance computing in Australia has been somewhat stifled compared to the US or UK, where there exist small niche companies servicing this market sector. This project aims to change this, developing affordable high performance cluster computing systems for the Australian market place and beyond.
Funding Amount $250,000
