This paper reports the current status of the CRI project. This paper designed a flexible cluster infrastructure that can be configured to emulate various high-end clusters. This computing research infrastructure will facilitate systems research and development, and greatly improve the research productivity of the participating groups. Due to the unexpected delay in the infrastructure acquisition (The first vendor selected was unable to deliver the system); the proposed infrastructure is still in the process of being installed by the second vendor. As a result, the authors can only discuss in this paper some of the expected outcomes of the research, facilitated by the proposed infrastructure.
