Submitted by

Enleth writes "The fastest supercomputer of Central Europe (9th fastest in the whole Europe), dubbed "Galera" ("Galley") was unveiled on 3rd March at TASK Academic Computer Centre in Gdansk, Poland. "Galera" consists of 336 quad-CPU nodes running Debian Etch, connected together using InfiniBand. With 1344 2.3GHz quad-core Xeons, 5.3TB of main memory and almost 8km of cabling, it provides the processing power of over 50 teraflops. "Galera" will be used to help with research conducted at Gdansk University of Technology, including nautical and avionics simulations. Present at the official announcment was Intel CEO, Paul S. Otellini, among others.
Technical specifications and a press report are available, as of now, in Polish only."

What this country needs is a dime that will buy a good five-cent bagel.
