2011 WestGrid upgrades

There were significant upgrades to the Bugaboo and Orcinus WestGrid facilities during the latter half of 2011.  In December a major new cluster arrived at the University of Calgary (more than 7000 cores, including 60 compute nodes with 3 general-purpose graphics processing units each).  It will be made available earlier in the New Year.  The decision whether this will be an extension to the Lattice cluster or given a separate name has not been finalized.  For now, details of the cluster are given in the Lattice QuickStart Guide.  A large (16 TB) shared-memory system is being installed this month at the University of Edmonton. See the Hungabee QuickStart Guide for more information.
