Sun Microsystems has supported Rocks through their gracious hardware donations, most notibly the 129-node cluster that was built in two hours on the vendor floor at SC 2003.
AMD has loaned us several Opteron and Athlon boxes to make sure Rocks always supports their latest chip architectures. In addition, AMD co-sponsored Rocks-A-Palooza I, the first Rocks All Hands Meeting.
Dell has loaned us several x86, x86_64 and ia64 boxes to make sure Rocks always supports their server hardware. They have also provided extremely valuable bug reports, and feature requests. We thank Dell for helping make Rocks stronger.
SilverStorm Technologies (formerly Infinicon Systems) donated 64 nodes worth of Infiniband gear in order to provide an appropriate development platform for the Rocks team to produce the first version of the IB Roll for SilverStorm fabrics.
Compaq has donated several x86 and ia64 servers to the Rocks group for development, and production clustering. We gratefully acknowledge the support of Compaq Computer Corporation, especially Sally Patchen, the California Educational Accounts Manager.
This list is invariably incomplete. We would like to include all those who have contributed patches to the Rocks system. Please contact us if your name has been erroneously omitted. Names appear in alphabetical order.
