Mana is based on Dell's new PowerEdge M610 series with half-height blade architecture, arranged in 1,152 compute nodes, each with two, 2.8 GHz quad-core Intel Nehalem processors and 24 GB RAM (3 GB/core) - a total of 2,304 processors with 9,216 compute cores. The interconnect fabric is Dual Data Rate Infiniband, and the system is configured with nearly 400 TB of direct-attached, DataDirect disk.
Riptide is an IBM iDataPlex. The login and compute nodes are populated with two Intel Sandy Bridge 8-core processors. Riptide uses the FDR 10 Infiniband interconnect and uses IBM's General Parallel File System (GPFS). Riptide has 756 compute nodes with Direct Water Cooling; memory is not shared across the nodes. Each diskless compute node has two 8-core processors (16 cores) with its own Red Hat Enterprise Linux OS, sharing 32 GBytes of memory. Riptide is rated at 251.6 peak TFLOPS.
MHPCC HPC Portal aims to enhance effective access and use of HPC resources. MHPCC HPC Portal provides a secure access point with single sign on, and supports an integrated framework with access to de-centralized components allowing HPC “jobs” to run on available HPC resources. This is provided through a centralized web interface that requires no software installation.
