PDSF, the Parallel Distributed Systems Facility, has been in continuous operation since 1996 serving high energy physics research. It is currently a tier-1 site for Star, a tier-2 site for Alice and a tier-3 site for Atlas. The PDSF cluster will move early next year from its current site at Oakland to a new building on the LBNL campus. Several racks have already been installed at the new...
