    Xserve clusters seem to be big lately. Recent Xserve OS X clusters:

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

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