Linux cluster, made from 65 PlayStation 2s! – “The NCSA has constructed a PlayStation 2 Linux cluster as a test bench for scientific computation on “toy” hardware. The cluster consists of 65 compute nodes, 4 user login and development nodes, and 1 prototype node for software installation tests. All the nodes run the Sony Linux distribution for PlayStation 2. The compute nodes fill a 24-inch rack; 5 shelves at 13 per shelf” [via] – Link.
