RHUL cluster expands

Yesterday, RHUL took delivery of new storage and compute nodes to beef up its Tier2 cluster.
The GridPP and CIF funded kit was supplied by Dell and is being installed and configured by Alces.
The extra 6.3 kHS06 and 420 TB will more than double the capacity of cluster.
Once the installation is complete and accepted, work to integrate it with the existing cluster and bring up the gLite services will begin.
