HPC Cluster

We have a number of machines in a Cluster of Workstations arrangement. They are grouped by their intended workloads.

We have a HT Condor submit node with 10GbE network connectivity, local SSD and 8TB of HDD space running OpenZFS for data integrity.

We have two storage servers, both with 10GbE network connectivity, terabytes of space running OpenZFS for data integrity.

All compute nodes have local storage as well as having access to a storage server.

In order to keep up to date and for reliability older hardware is regularly replaced.


Compute nodes

For CPU-only workloads we use 3rd generation AMD Ryzen 9 processors with 12 cores/24 threads, 64GB of memory and 1TB of local SSD storage.

For CPU and/or OpenCL workloads we use 8th generation Intel core i7 processors with 6 cores/12 threads, Intel graphics, 32GB of memory and 1TB of local SSD storage.

For CPU, CUDA or OpenCL workloads we use 3rd generation AMD Ryzen 7 processors with 6 cores/12 threads, Nvidia GTX 1660 Ti graphics, 32GB of memory and 1TB of local SSD storage.


Raspberry Pi

These are suitable for low power compute roles. We have a mix of Raspberry Pi 3 model B+ and Raspberry Pi 4 model B. The Pi 3 nodes are being replaced by the Pi 4 as we can get them.

Raspberry Pi 3 model B+
These have ARM v8 (ARM Cortex-A53) processor with 4 cores, Videocore IV graphics, 1GB of memory and local storage is a 16GB micro SD card.

Raspberry Pi 4 model B
These have ARM v8 (ARM Cortex-A72) processor with 4 cores, Videocore VI graphics, 8GB of memory and local storage is a 16GB micro SD card.

The Raspberry Pi’s have their own NFS server.
