Funding

This cluster is funded by NSF grant 2019089 "CC* Compute: Accelerating Science and Education by Campus and Grid Computing" under the NSF CC* program. The cluster will be integrated with the Open_Science_Grid (OSG). At least 20% of capacity will be contributed to the OSG as required by the program.

Configuration

Hardware

  • 2048 AMD EPYC 2 cores and 4TB DDR4 memory in 8 compute nodes
  • 256 AMD EPYC 2 cores, 2 NVIDIA Tesla A100 and 4TB DDR4 memory in 2 high-memory GPU nodes
  • 128 AMD EPYC 2 cores in a head node
  • 1PB storage (raw)
  • HDR100 Infiniband interconnect
  • 10Gb/s connectivity path from each node to Internet 2

Software
