- Thomas installed a 36 node cluster with 720 cores.
Each node has two E5-2690v2, 3.00GHz and 128GB of RAM. The parallel
installation of all nodes using FAI took 7 minutes. (2014)
- A new Beowulf cluster at EDF (200 Tflops) which is 43rd in the latest TOP500 (June 2011), was partially installed using FAI.
- A huge cluster called ATLAS
containing 1342 nodes at the Max Planck Institute for Gravitational Physics (2008). questionaire entry,top500.org entry

- A very detailed guide (in pdf)
how a specific cluster was set up using FAI. (FAI 2.4, 2005)
HPC2N Opteron Cluster Sarek is a
192 node dual AMD Opteron cluster, listed at rank 168 in the
top500.org list in june 2004.
A 25 node dual-CPU AMD Opteron 1.4GHz called RAVANA.
The IA64 cluster called Lucidor was listed on place 354 in the Top500. (2003)
The HPC2N Super Cluster Seth
with 120 dual Athlon nodes. This cluster was on the 94th position in the top500.org supercomputer list in june 2002
Robots Project (2002)
The university of California Santa Barbara has a
16 node dual AMD 1.8Ghz Beowulf cluster for database and distributed systems research
23 nodes with Athlon XP are used by the TIK Experimental Cluster Scylla. (2004)
A 21 nodes with dual XEON 2.4GHz Beowulf cluster called shiva build with FAI 2.4beta.

A 21 nodes AMD 1GHz Beowulf cluster called hydra
A 28 nodes AMD 1GHz Beowulf
cluster build with FAI 2.5beta used for molecular thermodynamics and
simulation. German article page 20ff.
at the department of Physical Resource Theory at the Chalmers University of Technology in Gothenburg/ Sweden. 10 Nodes with
a total of 13 CPUs.
A Beowulf cluster called Biowulf/IME with
16 nodes of 1.2 GHz AMD Athlon used for bioinformatic applications.
at Matsulab of the Tokyo Institute of Technology are
installed using lucie, which is a mixture of FAI
and some other tools like ganglia, nagios, dolly+ and others. Most FAI
tasks are rewritten in ruby
but have the same functionality. They installed following clusters with
lucie: Presto I, Presto II, Presto III, OBI Grid Cluster
