Cluster Computing

Services

We provide a parallel computer cluster for high-speed computations. We provide software installation and configuration and end-user training for researchers wishing to use this powerful tool for bioinformatics, biostatistics and modeling.

Equipment

We maintain a Beowulf cluster consisting of 10 computers, each with two Intel dual-core processors (40 total processing units). The cluster is running Fedora Linux and utilizes all open-source software.

In 2010 we purchased 6 additional computers to add to this cluster. Each of these has two Intel quad-core processors (48 total processing units). While these computers will eventually be integrated into the existing cluster, they are currently running as 6 independent Windows XP platforms. This configuration is being used for biostatistics modeling software that is Windows-based.
