Center of Excellence in Bioinformatics and Life Sciences

A leading academic supercomputing facility, CCR has more than 100 Tflops of peak performance compute capacity and 600 TB of high-performance storage.   CCR's computing facilities, which are housed in a state-of-the-art 4000 sq ft machine room, include a Linux cluster with more than 8000 processor cores and QDR Infiniband interconnect. A subset (32) of the cluster nodes contain (64) NVidia Tesla M2050 "Fermi" graphics processing units (GPUs). The Center also maintains several high-performance storage systems including Isilon-based storage (320TB) as well as a parallel storage system from Panasas (170TB). The computer visualization laboratory features a tiled display wall, and a VisDuo passive stereo system.
