Linux Clusters: The HPC Revolution 2004 was sponsored in part by the following institutions.

National Computational Science Alliance  

The National Computational Science Alliance (Alliance) is a partnership to prototype an advanced computational infrastructure for the 21st century that includes more than 50 academic, government, and industry research partners. The NSF Partnerships for Advanced Computational Infrastructure (PACI) program funds the Alliance.

Computer Science Research Institute

The Computer Science Research Institute (CSRI) brings university faculty and students to Sandia National Laboratories for focused collaborative research on DOE computer and computational science problems. The CSRI is organized under the DOE Stockpile Computing Program. CSRI provides a mechanism by which university researchers learn about problems in computer and computational science at DOE Laboratories. Participants conduct leading-edge research, interact with scientists and engineers at the laboratories and help transfer the results of their research to programs at the labs.


Dell Inc. (NASDAQ: DELL) is a premier provider of products and services required for customers worldwide to build their information-technology and Internet infrastructures. Company revenue for the past year totaled $41.4 billion. Dell, through its direct business model, designs, manufactures and customizes products and services to customer requirements, and offers an extensive selection of software and peripherals. Information on Dell and its products can be obtained at


IBM strives to lead in the creation, development and manufacture of the industry's most advanced information technologies, including computer systems, software, networking systems, storage devices and microelectronics. IBM translates these advanced technologies into value for its customers through professional solutions and services businesses worldwide.

Los Alamos Computer Science Institute

The Los Alamos Computer Science Institute (LACSI) supports research in areas relevant to the Department of Energy's Advanced Simulation and Computing (ASCI) Program. Partnerships between LANL and academic research groups pursue results in a longer time frame than the Program's operational objectives, but focus on issues that support the successful implementation of ASCI's missions.


Myricom, Inc., a privately held California Corporation founded in 1994, created Myrinet, the leading high-speed network for connecting computers to form clusters for high performance and high availability. In addition to direct sales, Myricom supplies Myrinet products and software to IBM, HP, Dell, NEC, Sun, Linux Networx, Cray, and many other OEM and system-integration companies.


For more than a decade HPCwire, the worldwide electronic publication of record for all aspects of the High Performance Computing (HPC) industry, continues to keep it's readers at the leading edge of HPC news and information. HPCwire continues to be devoted primarily to ongoing developments across the entire spectrum of computationally-intensive hardware, software and integrated systems technology.

HPCwire's "BREAKING NEWS" provides readers with daily HPC news and is published every Friday providing its readers with the most current news and information. HPCwire: keeping its readers in the know.

Linux HPC is a Web site for system administrators, developers, and enterprise managers, offering recent industry news, events, mailing lists and links, all related to high-performance technical computing and clustering with Linux. is a community-based portal providing information on one subject: Linux high-performance computing. It is part of a small network of technical Web sites that are managed and maintained by Ken Farmer.

Linux Journal

Linux Journal is the premier magazine of the Linux community, dedicated to serving the Linux community and promoting the use of Linux world-wide. Published by SSC Publications, an established leader in the Linux, Open Source and UNIX fields, the award-winning monthly magazine is now celebrating its ninth year of publication.
