ITS has installed and is operating a high performance computing cluster based on Dell PowerEdge servers with Intel Xeon processors (see hardware details). All cluster nodes run Red Hat Enterprise Linux as the operating system. Initial installation was completed in May 2005 and has grown significantly since.
The details on how to start using the cluster, how to run specific applications, how to compile your code, and how to run the cluster jobs are given in detail in this website:
The cluster is currently available to Case faculty for research purposes. Case faculty members should fill out the application form attached below and email the completed form to firstname.lastname@example.org. Please contact Roger.Bielefeld@case.edu with any questions on the account application process.
Please take a look at research that has been done on the Cluster in past years. If you use HPCC resources in your research work, we ask that you acknowledge the use of the HPC cluster in your publications and presentations as follows:
"This work made use of the High Performance Computing Resource in the Core Facility for Advanced Research Computing at Case Western Reserve University."
Researchers can participate in the growth of central high performance computing facilities by providing hardware and/or sharing in the software and operational costs. Operation of the facility is guided by usage policies approved by the Advisory Committee on Research Computing. Please contact Roger.Bielefeld@case.edu for additional information.
Those with an HPC cluster account and password can view the current status of the cluster here.
