The KyRIC cluster will advance several exciting research programs across many disciplines, such as Bioinformatics and System Biology Algorithms, Large Graph and Evolutionary Network Analysis, Image Processing, and Computational Modeling and Simulation.
Five large memory compute nodes dedicated for XSEDE allocation. Each of these nodes have 40 cores (Broadwell class and lntel(R) Xeon(R) CPU E7-4820 v4 @ 2.00GHz with 4 sockets, 10 cores/socket), 3TB RAM, and 6TB SSD storage drives. The 5 dedicated XSEDE nodes will have exclusive access to approximately 300 TB of network attached disk storage. All these compute nodes are interconnected through a 100 Gigabit Ethernet (l00GbE) backbone and the cluster login and data transfer nodes will be connected through a 100Gb uplink to lnternet2 for external connections.
