There is no charge for using these compute resources.
The HPC cluster, named Henry2, is an Intel Xeon based Linux cluster. Compute nodes include a mix of several generations of Intel Xeon processors primarily in dual-socket blade servers. Integrated into Henry2 are a number of large memory compute nodes and a number of nodes with attached GPUs.
Work is scheduled on the cluster using a queuing system (LSF). Various queues are available to all HPC accounts. Submitted jobs are placed in queues based on how long they will run and how many processor cores they will use.Resources may be specified according to:
For distributed memory jobs:
For shared memory jobs:
For GPU jobs:
If existing compute resources are inadequate for the needs of a project, there is an opportunity to purchase additional compute nodes under the HPC Partner Program.
