    COLSA Mach5

    Some highlights:
    -Mach5 achieves 25Tflop with 1,566 nodes (an improvement of roughly linear scaling)
    -Runs OS X Server with IBM Fortran XL compiler
    -600 ft^2 of floorspace
    -400kW peak power draw

    There's no mention made of cost, but with an 1,100 node machine costing a little over $5,000,000, can the Mach5 be all that much more?
