RHUL 'Newton' cluster comes home

After two years hosted by Imperial College, our 'Newton' Grid computing cluster has finally been relocated to Royal Holloway's new state-of-the-art computer centre. The move was carried out by Clustervision and everything went smoothly. Before the cluster goes back into production, analysing LHC data, a software upgrade to SL5 is planned.

A small part of Newton remains at IC: the racks were donated to become part of the particle physics cluster.
