The following is one way to describe the available computing resources in a proposal. As a VBC user, if you've written a proposal that describes this better, please add that language to this page.
High performance Computing Cluster (Cheaha):
Location: Rust Building, accessible remotely
Capabilities: 192 3.0GHz Intel-based compute cores with 386GB of RAM interconnected via a DDR Infiniband network. A high-performance, 180TB Lustre parallel file system built on a Direct Data Network (DDN) hardware platform is also connected to these cores via the Infiniband fabric. An additional 20TB of traditional SAN storage is available via a 1GigE network fabric. This general access compute fabric is available to all UAB investigators. Good for data analysis on very large datasets.
