The KyRIC cluster will advance several exciting research programs across many disciplines, such as Bioinformatics and System Biology Algorithms, Large Graph and Evolutionary Network Analysis, Image Processing, and Computational Modeling and Simulation.
The KyRIC hybrid cluster consists of two subsystems: a 5 nodes cluster, each with 4 10-core processors, 3TB RAM, and a 6TB SSD array; Each of these nodes have 40 cores (Broadwell class and lntel(R) Xeon(R) CPU E7-4820 v4 @ 2.00GHz with 4 sockets, 10 cores/socket). These 5 dedicated ACCESS nodes will have exclusive access to approximately 300 TB of network attached disk storage. All these compute nodes are interconnected through a 100 Gigabit Ethernet (l00GbE) backbone, and the cluster login and data transfer nodes will be connected through a 100Gb uplink to internet2 for external connections. Due to the use of the 100GbE network, this cluster is for single node jobs only and is not recommended for multi-node jobs, such as those using MPI.
