In the 3rd quarter 2005 the Technische Universität Dresden started to install the first phase of a new SGI supercomputer and a PC farm build by LinuxNetworX. The final phase of the installation will take place in July/August 2006. One main focus of the installation is to have not just outstanding I/O-Performance for the disk to memory channel but for the tape to disk channel too. In this paper we will show how our setup looks like and what our expectations for the performance are. We will also present some measurements done on the system and show the performance boundaries of the current setup.
