The 160 processor WRG Sheffield node (named iceberg) has been supplied by Sun Microsystems and integrated by Streamline Computing. Eighty of these 2.4GHz AMD Opteron processors are 4-way nodes with 16GB main memory coupled by a Myrinet network; the remaining eighty nodes are 2-way nodes with 4GB main memory.

At Sheffield there is also a Tier-2 GridPP node supporting the particle physics grid. This system is configured with 160 processors in 2-way nodes, and it runs 64-bit Scientific Linux, which is Redhat based.
