Computer Cluster Ordered

Last week, I got word that the 16-core processors were available for order from our supplier.  I placed an order for our dedicated cluster that will be composed of

  • 8 nodes each with 64 cores and 256GB of RAM
  • A total of 512 cores and 2TB of RAM
  • QDR Infiniband interconnect
  • 48TB of long-term storage space.  Scratch space is 250TB.  It is shared among other clusters and connected by Infiniband.
The cluster should arrive in about a month and be tested and ready for science in December or January.  There are plans to expand the cluster to have Tesla GPU systems. It will be a very useful resource for rapid development and science once it become online. I’m very excited about it!
