Is DEXTER personal cluster a supercomputer?

Yes, a small one.

To simplify things a little bit a supercomputer is made of individual computers connected by a high-speed network. They consist of several hundreds of computers making 1000’s of CPU cores.

In a DEXTER personal cluster we have four individual computers and they are connected by a high speed network. Not that high speed as used in big supercomputers though.

So yes, it is a small supercomputer with capabilities designed to fit the needs of professionals who have grown out the computing power of their single-computer workstation and want the power of cluster computing by their office desk.
