EquipmentCheaha provides users with a traditional command-line interactive environment with access to many scientific tools that can leverage its dedicated pool of local compute resources. The local compute pool provides access to three generations of compute hardware based on the x86-64 64-bit architecture. It includes 576 2.66 GHz cores of the latest generation Intel Westmere CPUs with a QDR Infiniband interconnect, 192 3.0GHz cores with a DDR Infiniband interconnect, and 100 1.6GHz cores with a traditional 1Gbs Ethernet interconnect, totaling 868 cores. The compute nodes are backed by 180TB of high performance storage and an additional 40TB available for home directories and ancillary services. The compute nodes combine to provide nearly 8.75TFlops of dedicated computing power. <br /> For more information, see https://docs.uabgrid.uab.edu/wiki/CheahaCenter AffilationsCenter for Biophysical Sciences and Engineering Center for Computational and Structural Dynamics Comprehensive Cancer Center Heflin Center for Genomic Science (HCGS) Nutrition Obesity Research Center Vision Science Research Center Serves - Internal and External
