Default Cluster @ MSRC

Just Curious, is MS using this cluster for any business or research or is this only used for NFSNET (and ECMNET)?

IIRC, there are 16 dual PIII @ 1GHz nodes with 1GB memory? What OS are they running (2003?)

Any plans for an upgrade ;)

The cluster is a research tool which is generally available to MS researchers. I make by far the most use of it and that primarily for ECMNET and NFSNET. Others here do use it from time to time.

The nodes actually have 2GB memory each but otherwise the details are correct. The OS is Windows Server 2003 Enterprise edition.

The machine was installed 18 months ago and so isn't due for immediate upgrade. When and whether it gets upgraded in the future depends on our research needs.
