Created in 1986 at the University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign, the National Center for Supercomputing Applications (NCSA) is one of the five original centers of the National Science Foundation (NSF) Supercomputer Centers Program. NCSA wanted to develop a large High-Performance Computing (HPC) cluster that can offer the processing performance and application scalability required to solve a wide range of complex scientific and business problems and select software tools to help NCSA developers scale applications to run more efficiently and productively on large clusters. With help from Intel and Dell, the NCSA team built "Abe," a 9,600-core HPC cluster that uses Quad-Core Intel Xeon processors housed in 1,200 dual-socket Dell PowerEdge blade servers.
