    University College Cork has purchased a High Performance Computing Cluster solution (HPCC) from Dell. The UCC solution, which was manufactured at Dell's European Manufacturing Facility in Limerick, consists of 50 Dell PowerEdge 1655MC modular servers, each with two processors and 1GB RAM, in nine chassis and one 42U rack.

    The system will be used in the Boole Centre for Research in Informatics, a new centre funded by the Higher Education Authority involving the School of Mathematical Sciences and the Department of Computer Science. The cluster will be used by researchers and will also be connected to Grid-Ireland.

    Dr John Morrison
    , Department of Computer Science, University College Cork, commented, "This solution has enabled us to enter the realms of high performance computing in terms of processing power at a fraction of the cost. Ultimately this will enable research to take place at UCC, which might not otherwise have happened."
