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.
