Wetmore Lab - High Performance Computing Cluster

The cluster is composed of 85 Dell PowerEdge 1950 compute nodes and 1 Dell PowerEdge 2950 master node. Each compute node has two quad-core processors, 146 GB disk and 4 or 8 GB of RAM. In total, there are 680 cores for scientific computing that are connected by Dell PwerConnect 6248 switches to yield a total peak performance of 5.0 TFlops. The masternode contains 2 x 146GB disks for operating system and programs, and 4 x 300GB disks for storage space.
