Official Google Blog: Supporting cluster computing in the research community

Google has helped improve student's understanding of large cluster computing environments by given a select groups of University Students access to the Google Computer cluster which leverages thousands of compute nodes for testing massively parallel applications.

Since most Universities do not have the budget or the warewithall to fund extremely large computing environment's with thousands of cluster nodes, this really helps give students a jump into this specialized and fast growing area of IT infrastructure and programming.

Google partnered with IBM on this project and both have contributed technology and infrastructure for the students to use in their projects.

There is a YOUTUBE video that showcases the project below.
