Spareparticus has eight 386DX33 systems connected by 10 Mb/s Ethernet and PAPERS networks, driving a 2x4 video wall using 14" monitors. This cluster is now used primarily for development and testing of the AFAPI-based parallel file system and some VGA-based video wall software. Front and back views of this cluster are shown above; the application running is a simple Mandelbrot fractal computed using PAPERS to dynamically balance load across processors.
This cluster is no longer in active use.
The only thing set in stone is our name.
