    There are 45 nodes in a chassis, and this cluster consists of seven
    chassis. Each chassis has two 45XGc switches; each node is connected to
    both switches, and each chassis switch has four 40Gbps uplinks, for a total
    of 320Gbps of uplink capacity from each chassis. One switch is used for
    control traffic, connecting to the Internet, etc. The other is used to
    build experiment topologies, and should be used for most experimental
    purposes.

    All chassis are interconnected through a large HP FlexFabric 12910 switch
    which has full bisection bandwidth internally.

    We have plans to enable some users to allocate entire chassis; when

    There are 45 nodes in a chassis, and this cluster consists of seven

    both switches, and each chassis switch has four 40Gbps uplinks, for a total
    of 320Gbps of uplink capacity from each chassis. One switch is used for
    control traffic, connecting to the Internet, etc. The other is used to
    build experiment topologies, and should be used for most experimental
    purposes.

    All chassis are interconnected through a large HP FlexFabric 12910 switch
