List: beowulf Subject: Needed: Examples of how Beowulf systems are used in "real life" From: Jon 'maddog' Hall, USG Senior Leader hall () zk3 ! dec ! com Date: 1999-05-14 14:42:21 Hi, I was wondering if people would be so kind as to send a couple of sentences on exactly WHAT they were using their Beowulf systems for in "real life" (other than just building a 'really fast machine'). As an example, I know of one group that is using it to simulate meteors smashing into the earth...another group that is using it to do real-time animation. If you would be so kind as to send me a few sentences about what you are doing, what your organization's name is, and how big your configuration is, I would appreciate it. If you do not want me to mention your organization's name, that is fine.
