Supercomputer Resources

The supercomputer systems at the Compute Center form a specific metacomputing system that consists of:

  • Xeon QuadCore based cluster'Galera' - 1344 Intel Xeon QuadCore processors (5376 cores), 25 TB total system memory, 100 TB disk storage. Mellanox InfiniBand interconnect with 20 Gb/s bandwidth.

    Its computing power is exploited in parallel computations and simulations of condensed matter, large biomolecules and fluid dynamics.

    Total theoretical peak performance: 50 TFLOPS.
    Linpack performance: 38.17 TFLOPS - 45th on TOP500 (June 2008)
  • Itanium 2 based cluster'Holk'
    • 256 Intel Itanium 2 Dual Core with 12 MB L3cache processors, 2,3 TB total system memory, 4 TB disk storage. Mellanox InfiniBand interconnect with 10 Gb/s bandwidth.

      Its computing power is exploited in parallel computations and simulations of condensed matter and large biomolecules.

    • 32 Intel Itanium 2 Dual Core with 12 MB L3cache processors, 128 GB total system memory, 1 TB disk storage, Mellanox InfiniBand interconnect with 10 Gb/s bandwidth, theoretical peak performance 360 Gflop/s. This machine is part of National Cluster of Linux Systems (CLUSTERIX) - a distributed metacluster of a new generation.
    Total theoretical peak performance: 3.2 TFLOPS.
  • SGI Altix 3700, 128 Itanium 2, 1.5 GHz processors, 512 GB RAM, 1 TB disk storage . The system has a NUMA architecture with shared memory built around a high-speed NUMAFlex bus and is used as a large-scale computation server (768 GFlops).
  • SUN Fire V880, 4 x 64-bit RISC UltraSPARC III processors, 4 GB RAM, 6.4 TB disk storage. The system manages the four Sun StorEdge disk arrays, automated tape library and serves as a local file server for clusters and SGI machines
  • SUN Fire V880, 8 x 64-bit RISC UltraSPARC III processors, 8 GB RAM, 3.2 TB disk storage. This machine manages the two Sun StorEdge disk arrays and serves as a network file server for FTP and Usenet services
  • SUN Enterprise 5000, 8 x 64-bit RISC UltraSPARC processors, 8 GB RAM, 1 TB disk storage, 8 GFLOPs. Its significant feature is a high-speed GigaPlane bus that can process up to seven transmissions simultaneously. The system manages the SPARCstorage Array and serves as a network file server.
  • Managed by IBM Tivoli Storage Manager software archive system, containing Adic Scalar i2000 automated tape library (100 TB) and Sun StorEdge disk array (50 TB)
