The (now 16K) Connection Machine as seen through a window from the demo room.
The DataVault (also through a window from the outer room).
The CM as seen from inside the computer room. Part of the curved DataVault can be seen to the left. Since the CM would only be here temporarily before moving to the new computer room, we decided to leave all cables above the floor. That is (part of) the reason it looks so messy.
The CM frontends mowitz.pdc.kth.se (a Sun Sparcserver 690, the large cabinet) and on top of mowitz fredman.pdc.kth.se (a Sun Sparcstation2, the small boxes). The deskside box in front is nyx.nada.kth.se, an SGI Onyx VTX.
