ADVANCED COMPUTING FACILITY (ACF)
The Advanced Computing Facility at NIT Raipur has been established with the aim of providing advanced platforms to support work in compute-intensive disciplines like Numerical Modeling and Simulations etc. For more on the kind of work which will benefit, please refer "Supercomputer and its Applications" under Articles.
Facility 1: HPC Cluster / Supercomputer
The High Performance Computing (HPC) Cluster has been setup in the Advanced Computing Facility.
The node configuration of the HPC facility is as follows
|CPU||2 x Intel® Xeon® Processor E5-2620 v4||2 x Intel® Xeon® Processor E5-2650 v4|
|Memory||4x 32GB (128GB) configured for 2400MHz||4x 32GB (128GB) configured for 2400MHz|
|OS||CentOS Linux release 7.5.1804 (Core)||CentOS Linux release 7.5.1804 (Core)|
The HPC cluster comprises of one master and fifty four compute nodes. The supercomputer uses a 100 Gbps low latency cluster interconnect.
The Rmax performance of the HPC cluster with CPU only nodes is 39.5 TFLOPS. Two nodes are equipped with special-purpose cards like NVIDIA Tesla P100 and Quadro M4000 for compute acceleration, graphics visualization, etc.
The significant achievements of this section include the establishment of the infrastructure mentioned in table below
