High-Performance Research Computing

Printer-friendly version

Our scalable high-performance compute cluster relies on Sun Grid Engine software (version 6.2u3) for job submission and resource management, and includes 43 SunFire machines running Red Hat Enterprise Linux with a total of 140 64-bit processor cores and 600 gigabytes of memory.

Operating system and grid engine software installation are fully automated so that additional compute nodes can be deployed on-demand. All nodes have direct access to our data storage service with over 50 terabytes of usable primary storage.
