Spareparticus has eight 386DX33 systems connected by 10 Mb/s Ethernet and PAPERS networks, driving a 2x4 video wall using 14" monitors. This cluster is now used primarily for development and testing of the AFAPI-based parallel file system and some VGA-based video wall software. Front and back views of this cluster are shown above; the application running is a simple Mandelbrot fractal computed using PAPERS to dynamically balance load across processors.

This cluster is no longer in active use.

The Aggregate. The only thing set in stone is our name.
