I don't think I ever heard anything about this one. It is composed of 640 Xserves. The article itself doesn't mention it but the caption in the Photo does.

Maybe that cluster isn't powerful enough to really be on the radar like Virginia Tech's was. After all, it's only got 640 XServes (1280 processors, assuming 2 processors per XServe). Somehow I missed this cluster too - I guess nobody found it newsworthy.
