Philip

Philip, named after one of the first Boyd Professors (A Boyd Professorship is the highest and most prestigious academic rank LSU can confer on a professor) at LSU, chemistry professor Philip W. West, is a 3.5 TFlops Peak Performance 37 compute node cluster running the Red Hat Enterprise Linux 5 operating system. Each node contains two Quad Core Nehalem Xeon 64-bit processors operating at a core frequency of 2.93 GHz. Philip was delivered to LSU in May, 2009 and is to be open for general use to LSU users. A user guide is given here.
