Rutgers University just opened a BlueGene/P supercomputer, named Excalibur. Rutgers hopes to add a faster BlueGene/Q design in the future, but BlueGene/P, a cluster based on PowerPC 450 cores, still provides teraflops of compute power for researchers. Rutgers is also considering how to make Excalibur available to businesses for reasonable compensation. Excalibur is apparently intended for life science applications (e.g. drug modeling).
