Computer Cluster

Specific details of the parallel computer cluster include:

  • Total of 64 nodes (allowing 256 processing threads)
  • Each node has:
  • Two processors (Xeon 2.66GHz Woodcrest) with dual core
  • 36Gb 15K RPM SCSI harddisk
  • Dual Gb Ethernet
  • 4Gb RAM (48 nodes) and 8Gb RAM (16 nodes)
  • 18.9 Tb of hard disk storage
  • 2 Master nodes (one Linux, one Windows Cluster OS), allowing the
  • supercomputer to run in one or both operating system configurations.
