VPAC publishes RFP’s for a new Linux cluster and additional storage

Well I’m happy to say that today I got the Request For Proposals (RFPs) out of the door for the proposed replacement of VPACs ageing Linux cluster Brecca (180 cores of 2.8GHz Intel Pentium 4 Xeon) and a significant amount of additional storage. Needless to say the new cluster must run Linux!

Please see the announcement on the VPAC systems blog for more information and copies of the RFPs.

This has been keeping my very busy recently and so I’m looking forward to a nice quiet break over Easter!
