Linux cluster of 24 cores (PowerStation Quattro A4600 with 2TB of usable RAID storage space) is permanently dedicated for the EPEF research group. This cluster is ideal for Open MP-based as well as for MPI-based simulations.
Additionally, the EPEF has workstations to perform small simulations.
Linux cluster at the Center for Simulation and Modeling
Since 2009, the group has utilized a 128-core Linux cluster which is part of the Center for Simulation and Modeling (http://www.sam.pitt.edu/) at the University of Pittsburgh. The Center takes care of maintenance and upgrade of the operating system and installation of the required software for parallelization. Furthermore, the Center provides a larger number of processors when needed for detailed simulations or simulations of larger domains as is the case for many environmental flow projects.
