To provide a test-bed for the applicability of cloud computing to scientific research, the Argonne National Laboratory within the U.S. Department of Energy deployed a high-performance cloud based on IBM System x iDataPlex compute nodes with Mellanox InfiniBand interconnects. This video provides an overview of the project. It runs about about 4 minutes.
