Hi all ..
Perhaps of interest, the U.S. Advanced Computing Laboratory
<www.acl.lanl.gov> is changing their name, and their web URL,
as of next Tuesday to <http://www.ccs.lanl.gov/> If you visit you
might explore the software at: <http://www.acl.lanl.gov/software/>
The ACL is an Advanced Computing Resource Facility established by the US
Department of Energy, Office of Science. Research efforts at the ACL are
supported by the US DOE Office of Science and Defense Programs.
Note: ACL becomes CCS-1 Effective October 2, 2000 the Advanced Computing
Laboratory became part of the newly reorganized CCS division.
The US Advanced Computing Laboratory is a world-class high-performance
computing research center committed to high-performance computer science
research, advanced systems integration, and scalable application
development (Department of Energy (DOE), Los Alamos National Laboratory
Location: Los Alamos, NM)
The ACL provides access to a unique computing environment which includes:
- The largest unclassified computer in the world: the ACL Nirvana Machine,
a 1-TeraOp peak speed SGI Origin 2000 system with one half TeraByte of memory
- The Little Blue Penguins cluster, a 128-node Pentium Pro cluster system
running the Linux operating system and interconnected with Myrinet
- The largest unclassified, integrated visualization system in the world
centered around 10 clustered SGI Infinite Reality systems attached directly
to the ACL Nirvana Machine.
And, by the way, on a related topic ..
The National Technical Information Service (NTIS) has created the
SciTechResources.gov database to provide one-stop, searchable access to key
U.S. Government science and technology resources.
This new web site is at: <http://www.scitechresources.gov/>
NTIS is part of the U.S. Department of Commerce. It serves as the central
resource for U.S. government-funded scientific, technical, engineering, and
business related information. NTIS provides businesses, universities, and
the public access to well over 2 million publications covering over 350
