European weather agency taps Linux cluster for pilot program

JULY 21, 2004 (COMPUTERWORLD) - The European Centre for Medium-Range Weather Forecasts (ECMWF) has installed a Linux cluster from Linux Networx Inc. as a pilot project to help it decide whether it should use the open-source operating system when it upgrades its high-performance forecasting equipment in the next three years.

In an announcement yesterday, Salt Lake City-based Linux Networx said the installation of the new Evolocity II Cluster was completed last month and is now running as a testbed for weather computations.
