Computing Overview of the HPC²
The HPC² provides substantial high performance computing resources for use by its member centers, including a 34 teraFLOPS 3072 processr Intel Westmere cluster with quad data-rate InfiniBand, a 10 teraFLOPS 2048 processor AMD Opteron cluster, a 384 processor Intel Xeon cluster with InfiniBand interconnect, and numerous additional special purpose machines. Data storage capabilities include a 600 terabyte high performance disk system and a 9 petabyte near-line storage system. The HPC²'s high-end visualization needs are met by an immersive reconfigurable CAVE virtual reality environment driven by a 4 node visualization cluster. An access grid node allows for state-of-the-art video teleconferencing and remote collaboration.
The HPC² network infrastructure backbone consists of both 10-Gigabit Ethernet and Gigabit Ethernet, with an extensive Gigabit Ethernet network for desktop connectivity. External network connectivity to the commodity Internet, Internet2, and the National LambdaRail is provided through a 10 Gigabit/sec connection to Southern LightRail in Atlanta, GA and dual 10 Gigabit/sec connections to the Mississippi Optical Network (MISSION) and the Internet2 node in Jackson, MS. The HPC² research facility at the NASA Stennis Space Center is also connected to MISSION via dual 10 Gigabit/sec connections.
