Tomorrow, Terra Soft will officially announce the construction of the world’s first Cell-based supercomputing cluster. Terra Soft will use the test cluster ‘E.coli’ to conduct advanced software development, optimization, and testing with emphasis on Y-HPC and Y-Bio applied to the Cell Broadband Engine. The production cluster ‘Amoeba’ will be made available to select University and Department of Energy laboratories to further life sciences research. The clusters will incorporate, in part, Cell-based PS3 systems.

Sounds like a prototype for the Sony PS100..
When Apple announced leaving PPC for Intel, many thought Terra Soft Solutions’ Yellow Dog Linux (PPC only) was dead, but they keep coming back again and again, no matter what is thrown at them!
BTW there is a video of them constricting the new place at http://www.terrasoftsolutions.com/showcase/video/
