Curie: 49-node POWER7+ cluster (LSF/HPC)
Curie is an 800-core IBM Power7+ cluster with nodes based on IBM's 64-bit 16-core Power7+ processors. Included in the 50 nodes are two login nodes with 256 GB of memory per node. Curie's file system and batch scheduler are shared with Ada cluster.
There are 48 compute nodes.
|Processor Type||IBM Power7+ , 8-core, 4.2 GHz|
|Memory/Node|| 256 GB, 1066 MHz |
234 GB Usable
|Interconnect||10 Gbps Ethernet|
|Local Disk Space||146 GB 10K rpm SAS drives: 2 drives|
The curie.tamu.edu hostname can be used to access the Curie cluster. This translates to login into one of the 2 login nodes, curie[1-2].tamu.edu. To access a specific login node use its corresponding host name (e.g., curie1.tamu.edu). Each login nodes has 256 GB memory and is equipped with 2 10K rpm SAS drives. Both login nodes have 1 GigE external connectivity and direct access to Ada's global parallel (GPFS-based) file systems via 10 Gbps Ethernet.
Curie shares Ada's GPFS file system. For details, see mass storage section for Ada.
All Curie compute and login nodes are connected via 10 Gbps Ethernet.
Curie is named after Marie Curie who conducted pioneering research on radioactivity.
