MetadataShow full item record
The Center for Computational Research, a leading academic supercomputing facility, maintains a high-performance computing environment, high-end visualization laboratories, and support staff with expertise in computing, visualization, and networking. The Center's extensive computing facilities, which are housed in a state-of-the-art 4,000 sq ft machine room, include a generally accessible (to all UB researchers) Linux cluster with more than 20,000 processor cores and high-performance Infiniband/Omni-Path networks, a subset of which contain NVidia Tesla V100 graphics processing units (GPUs). Industrial partners of the university have access to an additional cluster with more than 3,400 processor cores and FDR Infiniband. The Center maintains a 3PB IBM GPFS high-performance parallel file system plus a 1.7PB EMC2 Isilon shared network attached filesystem. A leading academic supercomputing facility, CCR has more than 1 PFlop/s of peak performance compute capacity. CCR additionally hosts many clusters and specialized storage devices for various specific departments, projects, collaborations, and researchers interested in hosting services should contact CCR staff. CCR's high-performance computing infrastructure and the research carried out utilizing it is partially supported through NSF Award 1724891: "MRI: Acquisition of High Performance Computing Infrastructure to Support Computational and Data-Enabled Science and Engineering."
