ABSTRACT
The Dutch Advanced School for Computing and Imaging has built five generations of a 200-node distributed system over nearly two decades while remaining aligned with the shifting computer science research agenda. The system has supported years of award-winning research, underlining the benefits of investing in a smaller-scale, tailored design.
