You want processing power?
Well we've got it at Glasgow; over 2,900,000 SI2k worth now, since we commissioned our cluster extension this week.
Following a period of, ahem, rigorous stress-testing (see Graeme's posting), we started releasing nodes to the Grid on Wednesday, and our first job (an ATLAS production task) arrived almost immediately. To date, the new nodes alone have handled over 14,000 jobs.
This now means that Glasgow are currently top of the UKI leaderboard in terms of raw processing power and, according to Gridmap, only behind RAL-LCG2 for the number of job-slots available.
For my next trick, I will make 400TB of storage appear...as if by magic...
