As part of Yahoo!’s continuing effort to advance cloud and mobile computing research, they are pleased to announce that, beginning in Summer 2010, they will make a cloud computing cluster available to selected universities in the US. Yahoo!’s M45 cluster is part of the open CirrusTM Testbed created by HP, Intel, and Yahoo!, and the cluster has been in use by selected universities since November 2007. The partition Yahoo! Plans to make available to universities will consist of roughly 400 nodes with a total of 3,200 cores, over 2 terabytes of memory, and over 1 petabyte of raw storage. The Yahoo! Cluster is intended to run the apache open source software Hadoop and Pig. Each selected university will share the partition with other selected universities. The initial duration of use if 6 months, potentially renewable for another 6 months upon written agreement.
