A parallel computing project at the University of California at Berkeley. Using nearly a thousand computers donated by Intel, its focus is on developing a multi-level "system of systems" that uses local clusters of SMP machines called a "CLUMP." The CLUMPs use technology from the earlier NOW (Network of Workstations) project at Berkeley. See NOW project and Beowulf.
