Macs in Chemistry

Insanely Great Science

OpenMacGrid

Currently, the OpenMacGrid (OMG!) has over 800 Macs connected. Since many of these Macs have more than two processor cores, this number translates to over 1000 processors, with a total computational power of over 2.0 Tera Hz (a Tera Hz is 1000 GHz!). At any given time, only a subset of these 800 agents are available for work. Looking at the widget on my machine it looks like about a third are available at any time and often there is spare capacity.
So if you have an idea for a project now looks like a good time to
submit it.
