Research Computing Platforms
The current research computing cyberinfrastructure at the University of Louisville provides a variety of systems for use in computational research. Available systems include a general-purpose high-performance distributed-memory cluster (with four GPGPU nodes), a high-memory SMP system, and an informatics data management cluster. All research systems are housed in the University's secure data center, administered by a team of specialized HPC system administrators, and supported by a team of research computing consultants. The cluster shares 408 TB of storage for home directories, software, and computing scratch space.
Facts about the distributed-memory cluster:
- 530 IBM iDatplex nodes each with two Intel Xeon quad or hex-core processors for 5112 total cores
- Each node has between 16 GB and 48 GB memory
- Each core has 2 GB or 4 GB of memory
- 14 nodes are equipped with dual NVIDIA M2050 or M2070 Tesla cards
- Estimated peak performance of 35+ TFLOPS
The SMP system has:
- 16 IBM Power6 4.7GHz CPUs
- 128 GB memory
The informatics cluster contains 40+ TB of dedicated storage along with high-performance, high-reliability database servers and associated web and application servers.
