As always, commenters often fail to distinguish between "capacity" and
"latency"

If you go to the stampede website
http://www.tacc.utexas.edu/stampede/

There are lots of nice photos of the infrastructure.. Something you don't
always see, and something that people don't often appreciate when building
large systems.  Not only do you need space for those racks, but you need
space for the transformer yard, the chiller room, etc.
