  1. Amazon Elastic Compute Cloud (Amazon EC2), presents a true virtual computing environment, allowing web service interfaces to launch instances with a variety of operating systems, load them with custom application environment, manage network access permissions, and run computer image using as many or few systems as desired.
  2. Diamond (SGI Altix ICE) has 1,920 compute nodes with 15,360 compute cores and 24 G dedicated memory per node.
  3. Jade (Cray XT4) has 2,146 compute nodes with 8,584 compute cores and 8 G dedicated momory per node.
  4. Garnet (Cray XE) has 1,264 compute nodes with 32 G RAM each. Each node has two eight-core AMD Magny-Cours processors (2.4 GHz) for a total of 20,224 compute cores. The compute nodes are supported by the Cray Linux Environment v3 (CLE3).
