Community members,
>  
> The Donald Danforth Plant Science Center is serious about the liquidation
> of its genomics cluster.
> 
> I have just been authorized to allow the sale of our cluster at a
> ridiculous price of $500 per node (less than half of what we were looking
> for initially. 
> 
> The functional rack grouping remains two racks with the racks, network
> switch, 40 nodes (80 processors) and power strips. $20,000 
> 
> If purchased in entirety, the price is $400 per node. This would then
> include the aggregation switches, the disk space and file server as well
> as control nodes and tape backup library.
> 
> This thing simply must go and I hope that the opportunity to buy at less
> than half to a third of our original asking price is incentive to move on
> this quickly.
