The cluster currently has more than 10,000 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.

High-Performance Storage

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 for the GACRC cluster.

  • Penguin IceBreakers storage chains running ZFS (100TB) - $HOME on Sapelo
  • Penguin IceBreakers storage chains running ZFS (560TB) -  $PROJECT research groups' long-term space - only for active projects requiring Sapelo access
  • Penguin IceBreakers storage chain running ZFS (720TB) -  backup environment for $HOME and $PROJECT.
