KBRIN Bioinformatics Cluster

Click to view Bioinformatics Cluster configuration at full viewThe KyBRIN Bioinformatics Cluster (kbrin.a-bldg.louisville.edu) is a hybrid cluster system for developmental bioinformatics use for researchers throughout Kentucky. The first generation cluster was built with 16 dual AMD 2400 nodes. An additional eight dual processor, dual core opteron nodes with 24 GB memory each have subsequently been added. Two RAID storage arrays are currently attached to KBRIN, offering 4 TB of storage and an additional 23 TB storage array used primarily for short term data and system backups.

Use of the cluster is intended for researchers and students throughout the Kentucky Biomedical Research Infrastructure Network (KBRIN) in order to further the development of bioinformatics education and research. The cluster is currently located at the Dahlem Supercomputer Center in the Henry Vogt Building at the University of Louisville Speed School of Engineering.
