Maybe they just have to wait until the next list is made. Twice a year, I think?

I've just updated the list of Mac supercomputers I've bookmarked. Recent Xserve clusters of 32 processors or more:

* VA Tech's "System X" aka "Big Mac"
(1100 dual-2.3 nodes and counting, used for a range of academic research)

* UCLA's "Dawson"
(128 dual-2.0 nodes, used for plasma physics research)

* French CGG cluster
(672 dual nodes, integrated into an existing 40 TFLOP cluster for oil prospecting)

* Australian Defence Force's "Checkmate"
(16 dual nodes, used for command and control simulations)

* UNC's cluster
(43 dual nodes, used for proteomics research)

* UC Davis's cluster
(38 dual nodes, used for Genome Center research)

* University College Santa Cruz's cluster
(36 dual nodes and counting, used for a range of academic research)

* US Army's "MACH 5"
(1566 dual nodes, used by Army and NASA for hypersonic flight research)

* U. Maine's "Baby MACH 5"
(256 dual nodes, used for software development and optimization for MACH 5)

Also, the US Navy is using Xserves on board submarines, to run their Linux-based sonar imaging system.

And VA Tech is considering much larger Mac clusters in future: "System L" and "System C."

i just like the fact that powerpc holds the majority of the top ten positions, there are also a fare few ibm 970 clusters.
