Ole Miss lands supercomputer

With a new award-winning supercomputer from Silicon Graphics, the Mississippi Center for Supercomputing Research at the University of Mississippi now offers the state's eight universities the most powerful shared memory system available.

Based on Ole Miss' Oxford campus, the center has afforded free centralized computer support to hundreds of researchers at state universities since 1987. The new 64-processor SGI Altix 3700 Supercomputergreatly expands this service. The Center also collaborates with Department of Defense sites at the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers in Vicksburg and the Stennis Space Center in Bay St. Louis.
