The Distributed ASCI Supercomputer 2 (DAS-2)

Notice: DAS-2 has been succeeded by the DAS-3 system.

DAS-2 is a wide-area distributed computer of 200 Dual Pentium-III nodes. The machine is built out of clusters of workstations, which are interconnected by SurfNet, the Dutch university Internet backbone for wide-area communication, whereas Myrinet, a popular multi-Gigabit LAN, is used for local communication.

The clusters are located at five Dutch Universities:
Vrije Universiteit, Amsterdam
Leiden University
University of Amsterdam
Delft University of Technology
University of Utrecht
Advanced School for Computing and Imaging
