Add another one to the list! And they're using Xgrid too.
* Louisiana State's "Nemaux"
(24 dual G5 nodes, used for 3D animation, audio, and scientific computing)
* French CGG cluster
(672 dual nodes, integrated into an existing 40 TFLOP cluster for oil prospecting)
* 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)
* 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."

How are Apple doing this What with CIO or whatever and Dell crowing about superior products, cheaper price points etc, all those guys you listed must be on some sort of dust!

It would be interesting to see where Dell clusters rank in the Top 500, vs. where Mac clusters rank.
Even more interesting to see how much they both COST per TFLOP!

Yo, Yo Yo, Represent
I'm surprised LSU went this way. I was there a few months ago for a football game and they are loaded with Dells. Another university nearby, South Eastern has a good bit of macs though.
Spare me my life.
