You Put Your HPC Cluster in a...WHAT??

Judging from a quick look at the survey results from this weekend's Sun HPC Consortium meeting in Portland, Oregon, Marc Parizeau's talk was a favorite with both customers and Sun employees.

Marc is Deputy Director of CLUMEQ and a professor at Université Laval in Québec City. His talk, Colossus: A cool HPC tower! [PDF, 10MB], describes with many photos how a 1960s era Van de Graaff generator facility was turned into an innovative, state of the art, supercomputing installation featuring Sun Constellation hardware. Very much worth a look.

A nicely-produced CLUMEQ / Constellation video that describes the creation of this computing facility is also available on YouTube.
