With SLEPc you can reliably compute up to a few thousand eigenpairs of  
a huge matrix. This is sufficient for most applications. We are  
working for optimizing memory usage in the case that many eigenpairs  
are requested.

Have a look at http://www.grycap.upv.es/slepc and if you need more  
details, contact us at slepc-maint at grycap.upv.es
