Advanced computing resources at the University of South Florida are administered by Research Computing (RC). RC hosts a student cluster computer (SC) which currently consists of approximately 10 nodes with nearly 240 processor cores running Red Hat Enterprise Linux 6. The cluster is built on the condominium model with 640GB of memory shared across the nodes in various configurations. The nodes utilize QDR InfiniBand for a computational interconnect. For long-term storage, students share a 2.4PB replicated file system for home directories and shared files that is on a nightly backup cycle. RC also provides and supports more than 120 scientific software packages for use on a variety of platforms. Remote system and file access is available from essentially anywhere via VPN connection. RC staff members are available to facilitate use of the cluster, as well as provide direct assistance. User education and training sessions are also provided several times per semester.
