World's Largest Linux System Image
Novell SUSE Linux Enterprise Server 10
SGI® Altix® 4700 blade platform and a beta version of SUSE® Linux Enterprise Server 10 from Novell, SGI demonstrated a single system image (SSI) running on a world-record 1,024 processors. Until that moment, the largest Linux SSI operated on 512 processors - another SGI record.
The record-breaking Altix 4700 system is now installed in Munich, Germany, at the Leibniz Computing Centre Munich (LRZ). LRZ houses Germany's National Supercomputer System, and the Altix 4700 installation marked the completion of LRZ's Phase I deployment, which incorporates 4,096 Intel® Itanium® 2 processors, 17TB of global shared memory, and a 330TB SGI InfiniteStorage solution.
