Resource Type

  1. Computer cluster


  1. Resource Description
    "The 144 IBM iDataPlex cluster nodes each house two eight-core Intel E5-2665 2.4Ghz Xeon Processors, 192 or 256 Gigabytes of RAM, and a 500 Gigabyte local hard drive. These nodes are sub-divided into virtual processing cores, with the capability to provision up to 5,100 virtual cores at 6GB of RAM per virtual core. Cluster and storage interconnection is provided by a 40Gbps Ethernet fabric with 10Gbps to each node. The cluster nodes are attached to 1.8 Petabytes of IBM Storwise V7000 disk storage, housed in two separate performance tiers (no backup). The disk is presented to the compute nodes via an ten-node IBM Scale out Network Attached Storage (SONAS) system leveraging the IBM General Parallel File System (GPFS). Computational job scheduling/queuing and cluster management is orchestrated by the IBM Platform Computing (LSF) suite of products."
