Executive Summary

Over a year ago, Dell engineers set out to design and build one of the world's largest Microsoft Windows - based High-Performance Computing (HPC) clusters at the University of Nebraska at Omaha (UNO). Funded with a budget of US$20 million and located in a 2,000-square-foot glass-walled enclosure in the Holland Computing Center (HCC) at the Peter Kiewit Institute, the cluster represents a major milestone in establishing the stature of UNO as a leading U.S. research center. The HCC has already attracted cluster users from the U.S. Department of Defense, Gallup, Microsoft, and the Milliman actuarial firm, and provides a major IT resource for UNO faculty and students as well as research scientists from around the United States.
