ABSTRACT
The article reports on the orders made by Computer Sciences Corp. for a Custom Supersystem from Linux Networx, The Linux Supercomputing Co. for the NASA Center for Computational Sciences (NCCS) at the Goddard Space Flight Center in Maryland. The system is designed to increase throughput for applications ranging from studying weather and climate variability to simulating astrophysical phenomena. It will supplement the NCCS architecture with improved price/performance and is designed to scale to as many as 40 trillion floating-point operations per second in its full configuration.
