Computing Facilities - Gaea

Gaea is a 60-node CPU/GPU hybrid cluster.

Each node is an HP SL380s G7 equipped with:

  • 2 x Intel X5650 2.66 GHz 6-core processors
  • 72 GB RAM
  • 4 x 500 GB 2.5” SATA disk drives (i.e., 2 TB each node)
  • 2 x NVIDIA M2070 FERMI GPUs, each with 6GB RAM and connected via PCI-E.

All 60 nodes are connected via Full 1:1 non-blocking Infiniband and Ethernet switch connectors.

The cluster also has two storage servers, each an HP Proliant DL380G7 server, and an HP P2000 disk storage array with 192 TB of effective storage space (i.e., after RAID6).

The storage array is connected to the storage servers via 6 Gigabit per second SAS connections.
