Apt computer cluster at Utah's Downtown Data Center
This computer cluster, comprised of approximately 200 servers, provides the main hardware resource for the Apt (the adaptable profile-driven testbed), a U.S. National Science Foundation-funded precursor to CloudLab, located at the University of Utah's Downtown Data Center. "CloudLab" is a large-scale distributed infrastructure based at the University of Utah, Clemson University and the University of Wisconsin, on top of which researchers will be able to construct many different types of clouds.
