Several local high school and undergraduate students including those from Los Alamos spent their summer assembling 2,500 computers at the New Mexico Consortium to create the world’s largest large-scale, low-level systems research facility. Another group of students spent their recent winter break putting the system together.
The National Science Foundation-sponsored project, known as PRObE, will provide a highly reconfigurable, remotely accessible and controllable environment that researchers anywhere in the world can use to perform experiments that are not possible at a smaller scale.
The New Mexico Consortium (NMC) received a four-year, $10 million grant from the National Science Foundation to develop and operate a national user facility for computer science research.
Thanks in large part to the students, the facility is nearing completion on time and within budget. Andree Jacobson, Computer and Information Systems Manager at NMC, says, “There’s no way we could have done this without their (students’) help.”
