Total exclusive computing power: 2.44 x 10^13 IPC from 3282 GHz, 5256 GB RAM, 238 TB HD.
Our primary computations are performed by a cluster of 1488 CPU cores. All our machines run the Linux operating system. This is exclusive to our group and the eventual goal is to expand this to a few thousand processor cores. The images above are of our present cluster constructed using 1u rackmounts with up to 64 cores each, in construction depiction, and our original "white box on shelves" cluster.
Our computing setup is broken down as follows:
|Type of machine||Number of machines/CPU cores||Speed/machine||RAM/machine||HD/machine||Names|
|farm||32/64||4.8 GHz||1024 MB||160 GB||fp98-fp128|
|farm||32/64||5.2 GHz||1024 MB||320 GB||fp129-fp160|
|farm||6/144||54 GHz||48389 MB||8 TB||fp1-fp6|
|farm||2/128||140.8 GHz||256 GB||10 TB||fp7 & fp8|
|farm||14/896||134.4 GHz||256 GB||8 TB||fp9-fp22|
|server||2/128||134.4 GHz||256 GB||9 TB||mv1-mv2|
|server||2/12||19.2 GHz||16 GB||6 TB||sp1-sp3|
|server||1/1||1.4 GHz||2 GB||1.5 TB||sp2|
|Storage device||Total storage (GB)|
Colour and B&W printers, scanners, and miscellaneous computing hardware are also readily available.
