Al-Salam is the working name for the Earlham Computer Science Department's upcoming cluster computer.

At the moment Al-Salam exists only as a $40,000 grant and a growing list of tentative specifications:

Contents

Latest Overarching Questions

Parts List

  1. Nodes - case, motherboard(s), power supply, CPU, RAM, GPGPU cards
  2. Switch - managed, cut-through
    1. Fitz: Having a hard time finding anyone who sells cut-through switches
      1. How about this store-and-forward switch from hp?
  3. Power distribution - rack-mount PDUs

Tentative Specifications

Budget

Nodes

Specialty Nodes

Educationally, we could expect to get significant use out of GPGPUs, but the production use is limited. Increasing the variance of the architecture landscape would be a bonus to education.
