I just sent out the word that WatsonLinux is being decommissioned, and managed a relatively good sales pitch for Shaheen in the process. For those of you who wonder what I do…
Shaheen is powered by a 16-rack (65536-core) IBM Blue Gene/P system and a 96-(soon 128-)node IBM System x cluster. It currently ranks at #18 on the TOP500 list  of the world’s most powerful supercomputers, and remains the most powerful supercomputer in the middle east, capable of 222.82 teraflops peak (190.90 sustained).
Built with the environment in mind, Shaheen ranks #9 on the TOP Green500 list , providing 378.77 megaflops per watt.
