I agree, I have a cluster running (8 nodes, is now one year, veeery patchy), the local
Computer Science Dep. just built one, moreover I know of several labs that have clusters
but never publicize it. The National Institute of Optics (Florence) has a good one are two
years, for example.

I will add some ten nodes soon, I run pvm-mosix for my applications. Most labs just use
the facility and do not bother to set up a list. Still, no one to my knowledge is selling
turn keys systems in Italy, aside from big firms selling systems in the 100'000+ Euros/$
range, all systems that I know are self-made.

Ciao

Franco
