Computational

Computationally, CA PP not only has its own facilities with advanced personal computers and workstations, but also draws on resources available at two top facilities, the Ohio Supercomputing Center, OSC, and the High-Performance Computing cluster at CWRU, HPC.

OSC provides supercomputing, research and educational resources to a diverse state and national community, including education, academic research, industry and state government and its main computational resources are:

  1. A4212 CPU Opteron “Glenn” cluster, which offers a peak performance of more than 75 trillion floating point operations per second and a variety of memory and processor configurations;
  2. A BALE Cluster with 55 Workstation nodes, which is a distributed/shared memory hybrid system constructed from commodity PC components running the Linux operating system;
  3. A Mass Storage Environment (MSE) at OSC that consists of servers, data storage subsystems and networks, providing a number of storage services to OSC HPC systems.

HPC is a high performance computing cluster available to CWRU faculty based on Dell PowerEdge servers with Intel Xeon processors. All cluster nodes run Red Hat Enterprise Linux as the operating system.
