CSE Parallel Computing Resources
Welcome to the CSE Parallel Computing Resource page. This generation of the CSE Parallel Computing Resource is hosted by the Illinois CampusCluster. Located in the Advanced Computational Building, the CSE Parallel Computing Resource consists of approximately 300 CampusCluster compute nodes, each with two 2.67 GHz Intel Xeon hex-core processors and 24 GB of RAM, for a total of about 3600 cores. The primary network connecting the cluster nodes is Voltaire QDR Infiniband. In addition, all nodes in the cluster are also connected by a 1 Gbs switched, full-duplex Ethernet. The operating system for the cluster is Scientific Linux. The cluster can be accessed by approved users only via secure shell (ssh or slogin) to the front-end array,
The CSE Parallel Computing Resource was created using HP Computer technology with financial contributions from
- Beckman Institute
- College of Engineering
- Computational Science and Engineering
- Department of Computer Science
- Department of Electrical and Computer Engineering
- Department of Physics
- Materials Research Laboratory / Materials Computation Center
- Office of the Vice Chancellor for Research
The CampusCluster is operated by NCSA. General questions and requests for help should be addressed to helpcampuscluster [dot] illinois [dot] edu.
The CSE Parallel Computing Resource is available on a limited basis for use in research or class projects by Illinois students, faculty, and staff affiliated with the Computational Science and Engineering Program or one of the other sponsoring units. Please acknowledge its use in any publications resulting in any part from research conducted using the CSE Parallel Computing Resource.
Requests for access to the CSE Parallel Computing Resource should be made through the CampusCluster
