Computer Cluster

Our program developments and applications are performed on our 1024-core computer cluster, whose configurations are
  • 64 compute nodes in a single rack;
  • 2 CPUs (Xeon E5-2650) per node. 16 physical cores, 32 threads;
  • 64GB RAM per node, 1600MHz;
  • 2TB scratch area per node (two 1TB 7200rpm);
  • One 108-port InfiniBand QDR Switch.
The head node has the same configuration, except for larger disk space.
We thank Northwestern University for its generous support, and Joe Lakovits (in the photo above) for technical help.
