The cluster currently has 8,240 compute cores, spanning general-purpose compute nodes (128GB RAM), high-memory nodes (512GB & 1TB RAM), CPU/GPU hybrid nodes (nvidia K40 GPUs). Additionally, the cluster hosts an ever-growing number of researcher-owned compute nodes obtained through the GACRC Buy-In Program. For more information, please see the GACRC wiki.
The penultimate cluster (named zcluster) deployed by the GACRC over the period 2009-2012 is comprised of an assembly of components sourced through different manufacturers.
The zcluster is comprised of compute nodes with 4, 6, 8, and 12-core processors from both Intel and AMD. Subsets of nodes have "large memory" (e.g., 128, 256, and 512GB of RAM), while others have infiniband connectivity, and GPU capabilities. Total CPU compute power is 25.9 Tflops. For more information, please see the GACRC wiki.
Data storage for the GACRC-supported cluster is currently provided by a number of storage environments. Notably, the following devices provide $HOME, $SCRATCH and $PROJECT capabilities to both GACRC clusters.
