This site provides a guide to the capabilities, features and use of the High Performance Computing (HPC) systems supported by UD's Information Technologies' research support staff. You will find details of IT-supported hardware and software environments, instructions and tutorials on their use, and their organizational and administrative structure.
The site also provides links to other high-performance computational resources available to UD researchers, including systems developed and maintained by departments and colleges, as well as IT support for the use national resources such as XSEDE (formerly TeraGrid) and commercial cloud services.
The Extreme Science and Engineering Discovery Environment (XSEDE, formerly called TeraGrid) is a single virtual system that scientists can use to interactively share computing resources, data and expertise. During this Webinar, XSEDE staff will introduce users to the process of writing a successful XSEDE allocation proposal. An allocation is required …
This July, UD joins a national group of geographically dispersed, prominent universities as host sites for workshops organized by the Virtual School of Computational Science and Engineering (VSCSE). The multi-day virtual workshops will be held in UD videoconferencing studios, led by faculty and researchers from UC San Diego’s Supercomputer …
UD IT employs a community cluster architectural strategy for building HPC systems: periodically, IT staff engage University faculty in the specification and purchase of a new cluster. The purchase is financed both by IT (cluster infrastructure, storage, and networking) and by faculty buy-in of compute nodes in the cluster.
The following table lists all clusters currently in service. Click on the cluster name to view more detailed information for that cluster.
|Inception Date||Cluster Name||Nodes||Processor|
|Jan 2012||Mills||201||12-core 2.4 GHz AMD 6234 (“Interlagos”)|
Training materials such as tutorials and workshops are designed to provide our users with instructions on topics pertaining to HPC cluster use in general and IT-supported HPC clusters.
