OSU HPCC Chooses Advanced Clustering Technologies to Build its Newest Supercomputer, Pistol Pete

OSU’s newest supercomputer, Pistol Pete, or “Pete” for short, is currently in closed Alpha test mode. 

Pete’s computational infrastructure comprises 5,312 processor cores, 17,280 GB RAM, and more than 500 TB of storage.

System summary:

  •          164 compute nodes, each with dual Intel “Skylake” 6130 CPUs and 96 GB RAM
  •          Two large memory nodes, each with dual Intel “Skylake” 6130 CPUs and 768GB RAM 
  •          100 Gb/s Intel Omni-path low-latency interconnect
  •          360 TB high-speed parallel file system
  •          Slurm Workload Manager

OSU’s supercomputers and support team enable computational and data intensive research for hundreds of researchers throughout Oklahoma’s academic institutions. The Pistol Pete supercomputer is anticipated to be available to researchers in the Fall 2018 semester.

The system was funded by MRI Award #1531128, Acquisition of Shared High Performance Compute Cluster for Multidisciplinary Computational and Data-Intensive Research.
