Dear all,

we are currently seriously looking into that (see my previous posting) and if 
I get the go-ahead the system should be running this summer.

We are planning to convert 5 clusters which will bring down the energy 
consumption from 41 kW (electricity, probably same amount again for cooling) 
to a mere 7 kW (including cooling) and more computational power due to newer 
hardware as well (Sandybridges).

So watch this space for more information and pictures. :-)

All the best from London
