Computing Facilities - ARC

ARC is a virtualized, or cloud, compute cluster.

The cluster has two compute nodes with a total of 1TB RAM, 48 CPU cores (about 260Ghz compute power) and 20TB raw storage all connected by twin bonded 10GB network links across a low latency pair of 10GB switches.

Being a virtualized cluster offers significant flexibility to run different operating systems, different workloads, different applications, all at the same time, all with different resource allocations and overcommit all of the CPU, RAM and disk.
