The Cornell Institute for Computational Science and Engineering (ICSE), in conjunction with the CCMR and a generous Intel donation, can now provide powerful research computing capabilities at a minimal charge. An Intel donation of 180 fast Xeon core processors (E5-2660v3 chip) form the CCMR-ICSE computer cluster, structured into nine 20-core systems. Each system has 96 GB of RAM and the cluster has over 200 TB of storage.
The CCMR-ICSE computer cluster will be housed in the ICSE computing facilities in Olin Hall at Cornell. This facility has extensive experience in high-performance computing and server management and will be available to students for software and programming support. Storage space and licensed software (Matlab, Gaussian09, Materials Studio, python, Qchem, octave, etc.) are included for use by all participating users. See the full list of software and answers on the FAQ’s PDF.
