Dauger Research today announced that its software achieved over 217 billion floating-point operations per second on a cluster of 33 XServes from the Applied Cluster Computing Group at NASA’s Jet Propulsion Laboratory (JPL). Using software provided by Dauger Research, the JPL group has begun “running parallel computing code on what is presently the largest working XServe cluster known to exist.” Among the codes executed on the cluster, the “AltiVec Fractal Carbon demo was one that achieved over 1/5 of a TeraFlop. This result is the largest calculation yet performed on an XServe cluster.”
