This is the documentation for users of the eResearch High Performance Computing cluster (HPC).
This provides to UTS researchers:
- compute resources across the UTS research community
- compute resources similar to what other university researchers have access to
- a training or development site for larger HPC projects destined for NCI.
For information about NCI and other compute and data resources for UTS researchers see the eResearch site at https://eresearch.uts.edu.au
Access to the Cluster¶
The HPC consists of:
- Thirteen nodes for compute, one node for login and a head node. There are also six private nodes in the cluster owned by researchers.
- The number of cores in each node is 56. Total number of cores is a bit over 700.
- Most cores have 384 GB of RAM but some have 1,500 GB for applications that require more memory. Total distributed memory is about 7.7 TB.
- Some nodes contain dual Tesla V100 GPU processing units.
- Most nodes have at least 3 TB and some have 6 TB of fast local attached disk.
- 700 TB of Isilon storage shared with other eResearch infrastructure.
