HPC Computational Resources

HPC computational resourcesThe HPC computational resources include a dedicated FCGR computer cluster in addition to use of the HPC provided by ITS at the University of Memphis.

The FCGR hardware includes an HP c7000 blade system and six HP Gen8 blades attached to an HP D6000 with GlusterFS configured on four blade servers and an array of 3TB size SAS drives. A local private 10Gig network provides connectivity between the ROCKS/Galaxy cluster and the GlusterFS file system.

The FCGR cluster has numerous bioinformatics tools including a local Galaxy instance which submits computational jobs to the ROCKS cluster.
