Computing

 

The Center's high performance computing system consists of one login node (master) and four compute nodes. Software packages, such as Stata, R, Python, and Matlab, are available on each compute node. The table below summarizes the basic technical specifications of the nodes.

master Intel Xeon E5-2650 v4 @ 2.2 GHz × 2 (24) 256GB
Centos 6
node01 Intel Xeon E5-2650 v4 @ 2.2 GHz × 2 (24) 256GB Centos 6
node02 Intel Xeon E5-2637 v4 @ 3.5 GHz × 2 (8) 256GB Centos 6
node03 Intel Xeon E5-2650 v4 @ 2.2 GHz × 2 (24) 256GB Centos 6
gpu (NVIDIA TITAN V × 2) Intel Xeon E5-2650 v4 @ 2.2 GHz × 2 (24) 512GB Ubuntu 16.04
