The HPCC provides consulting and assistance to campus researchers with experimental software and/or hardware needs. We also provide training in parallel and grid computing. HPCC will serves as a liaison between various teams that are engaged in research. We work to support, configure and port applications to HPCC resources.

HPCC has computational resources which include two Linux clusters. Ares, installed in December 2008 has sixteen dual-slot quad-core nodes with Intel Xeon 5350 2.0 Ghz processors with 8 Gigabyes of memory connected via dual Gigabit ethernets. The full parallel cluster has a total of 128 cores and a total memory of 128 Gigabytes, with a peak speed of 0.672 Teraflops.

Hades, installed on January 2010, has i) 8 dual slot hyperthreaded quad core nodes with the Intel E5520 2.33 GHz Xeon processor with 12 Gigabytes of Memory; ii) 28 dual slot hyperthreaded 6 core nodes with the intell EE5645 2.40GHz Xeon processor with 24 Gigabytes of Memory connected via a 10 Gigabit ethernet using an utra low latency Force 10 switch. The full parallel cluster has a total of 800 virtual cores and a total memory of 768 Gigabytes, with a theorectical peak speed of 5.0 Teraflops.
