The Computational Core Facility at SCSB provides state-of-the-art computational resources to researchers and students who are in needs of extreme computing power. The power house of the Core is a 30 processor LINUX cluster named gibbs, which provides parallel processing capabilities with total of 78 billions floating point operations per second, 25 GB of distributed memory and 700 GB of storage space.

The cluster also provides centralized file-server capabilities as well as a tape library with 400 GB of storage space to archive and secure data. The gibbs is  connected to UTMB network, and thus other workstations within the campus can easily access the resources of the Core.

If needed your local UNIX workstation can be NFS cross mounted  with gibbs, which will provide users with
painless file transfers and editing between your workstation and the cluster.
