LSU Tigers defend home bayou

SCC Update

Security for virtualized datacentres

SC10 Louisiana State University (LSU) is another first time competitor in the SC10 Student Cluster Competition.

They are located about 80 miles in New Orleans, so it's close enough to say that they have a definite home team feel.

They're also close enough that it didn't make a lot of sense to use a shipping company to move the hardware to the show.

So the team advisor put the cluster into the back of his pick-up (in a covered camper shell), placed the blades in the back seat and drove the whole configuration to the event.

There's a rumor that he may have arranged the gear in such a way as to seal his luggage into the camper for the first night - but that hasn't been corroborated by a second source, so I won't say anything about it here.

The LSU team is personable and are very good representatives of the local area. Take a look at the accompanying video for a closer look...
