New machine to boost computing capacity for SCD users
The Scientific Computing Division, part of NCAR's Computational Science and Information Systems Laboratory, took delivery of a new IBM p5-575 supercomputer named "bluevista" on 27 August. The new system, based on IBM's POWER5 processor and High-Performance Switch technology, will nearly double the number of computational cycles available to users.

SCD plans to make bluevista available for allocation and use by the university and NCAR communities and the Climate Simulation Laboratory on 1 January 2006.
