In large part, our research is performed on our group’s Linux cluster, Dodecahedron (named after the character from Norton Juster’s book The Phantom Tollbooth, who is great at math but only chooses to solve pointless problems.) This 20 node cluster has a total of:
- 228 processor cores (Intel Xeon E5645 2.40 GHz 6-core CPUs)
- 1.2 TB of RAM
- 13 TB of scratch disk space (RAIDed 15k SAS drives)
- 3 TB of files storage capacity
- 32 NVidia Kepler GPUs (16 dual-GPU GTX-690 cards)
We also make use of large shared computing resources at the Michigan State University High Performance Computing Center and through the NSF XSEDE program.
