Deployment (procurement, installation, testing, integration) of storage and compute server upgrades at each site during this phase of the IntegrationProgram. See also:

Site procurements

Tier 1


  • Will procure ~ 8000 HEPSPEC06 and ~400TB of disk space. Purchase should be made before the end of September but equipment will not be installed and operating until next quarter.
  • UM has bought 3 Dell M1000e blade chassis, 48 M610 2xE5520 24GB 2x146G 15K disks blades, 2 R710 storage headnodes and 18 MD1000 shelves with 2TB disks for a net increase of 350TB in storage.
    • Sun and others quoted either disk or worker nodes as a possible alternative, but were not competitive
  • MSU has bought 40 Dell R610 (1U) nodes with 2xE5520 24GB 2x146G 15K disks. Storage headnodes and disk shelves (perhaps 5-9 MD1000 w/2TB disks) are still under consideration but have not yet been ordered.


  • Storage upgrade; MWT2 will likely procure ~700 TB of storage (Systems: (6) Dell R710 + MD1000 shelves with 2 TB drives)
