High performance computing is focused on providing researchers with tools to solve computationally intensive problems. Some common uses of the system are computational fluid dynamics, molecular modeling, bioinformatics, and climate modeling.
In collaboration with other units on campus ITS-Research Services runs and supports two HPC systems to meet the high performance computing and high throughput computing needs of the campus. The Neon system was installed in Fall 2013 and is composed of 4000 processor cores and contains high memory systems with 512GB of memory and Xeon Phi and Nvidia Tesla accelerator cards. The Argon system was installed in February 2017 and consists of 6500 processor cores and contains high memory systems with 512GB of memory and Nvidia P100 accelerator cards.
Periodic training opportunities are posted on the HPC site or contact the HPC team for more information.
