A new high-performance computing resource previously only accessible for campus researchers from its location at Idaho National Laboratory’s data center in Idaho Falls is now available on campus with a large visualization wall. Faculty may request an account or schedule use of the visualization wall on the Kestrel cluster by emailing Inanc Senocak at firstname.lastname@example.org or Jason Cook at email@example.com.
The Kestrel cluster attacks your Big Data problems with a fast 64 TB parallel file storage system for large data sets, 2TB of memory, 512 Intel Xeon 2.6 GHz computing cores, and 64 high end graphics processing units (GPU).
Acquired with a grant from the National Science Foundation’s Major Research Instrumentation Program, Kestrel is capable of working through complex problems across disciplines, including projects as diverse as wind energy forecasting, modeling for threat reduction in chemical and biological defense, materials characterization and modeling, snow hydrology and remote sensing, and mechanisms of skeleton development in living systems.
