First Results of the Survey on Linux Compute Cluster (LCC) in the German Industry

As first result we want to show you the number of CPUs in Linux Clusters operated by different companies Total # of Processors in Linux Compute Clusters 
operated by different Companies in the German Industry in the German industry. The market where each company is operating as well as the total number of CPUs which is operated inside the company is shown.

Of a total of about 65 companies the company utilizing the highest number of processors in LCC is running around 1250 CPUs with Linux in different clusters. The next company in the German market is operating in the LifeScience market and runs about 786 CPUs in LCC. The total of CPUs utilized in LCC in the German industry amounts to about 5600 CPUs where the biggest part is used in the automotive industry with a total of about 3250 CPUs.
Here you can find more details about the Survey of LCC in Germany.

Remarks on Linux Compute Clusters

LANL's Mike Warren:
Example of a self-made Linux cluster
How the LANL built "The Space Simulator" - a 294 processor GigE cluster for 500.000 USD. More ...
DaimlerChrysler's John Picklo:
Introducing clusters we lose less jobs !
Compared to the job loss rate of 0,1% on SMP due to system failure DaimlerChrysler loses again half of that rate on their Linux and Itanium clusters. More ...
Linux Cluster TCO-Calculator available
With our Total Cost of Ownership-calculator (TCO) for Linux Compute Clusters you can calculate the distribution of costs (e.g. Hardware, Administration, Environm.) and do comparisons with your present system.
