High Performance Computing - Beowulf Cluster
High performance computing clusters are used to solve advanced analytical, numerical and computational problems. Uses for high performance range from data storage and analysis, simulations, modelling, data mining, software development and fast mathematical calculations.
The Materials and Engineering Research Institute cluster has been used for the development and redesign of products, optimisation of devices/processes, completion of large research projects, computer visualisation, consultancy and a wide range of soft matter materials and fluid flow modelling applications.
The cluster undergoes a rolling programme of upgrade and maintenance currently stands at 192 cores of Intel Xeon X5660 2.8 GHz (12 MB cache), 1 GB DDR3-1333 RAM per core with a 36 port QDR inifini band switch.
