Chiba City is a 512-CPU Linux-based computing cluster located at Argonne National Laboratory’s Mathematics and Computer Science Division. The cluster is designed to support computer science and computational science research requiring large-scale testbeds. This talk will describe the motivation for and design of the system, the experiences in installation and operation, results of research performed using the cluster, and future directions for cluster-related projects and research.
Remy Evard is one of the leaders of the Argonne Scalable Systems Software Project, and is the principal architect of the Chiba City cluster. His other research interests include scalable system administration, system software, multi-user collaborative systems, and parallel computing.
