BigRam

Bigram is intended for jobs that cannot be parallelized and require a large amount of RAM memory, such as de novo genome assembly.

48 RedHat Enterprise Linux 7 Intel(R) Xeon(R) CPU E7-4860 v2 @ 2.60GHz 1511 /home is 11 TB RAID6 composed of 1.2TB 10k drives behind 2GB NV cache bigram.ent.iastate.edu
Biocrunch

Biocrunch is a shared computing resource for those who need multithreaded computation but are not yet prepared to use a traditional HPC cluster.

80 RedHat Enterprise Linux 7 Intel(R) Xeon(R) CPU E5-4650 v2 @ 2.40GHz 768 /home is 9.4TB RAID5 composed of 1TB SATA SSDs biocrunch.ent.iastate.edu
Condo2017 Cluster Compute Nodes

The HPC Condo cluster is composed of 188 compute nodes, in addition to the head node, data transfer node, a "large" memory node, and a "huge" memory node. 

Each of the nodes are connected via Intel QDR InfiniBand (40 Mbps) switch, and run Red Hat Enterprise Linux 6.

The ResearchIT group has the ability to help researchers establish accounts, compile and install software, and provide support for the cluster.  Thee LAS college has a large allocation, and can help researchers get started on the Condo quickly.  Please contact us at researchit@iastate.edu if you would like to discuss your research needs and get started on this University resource.

Condo2017 Cluster Huge Memory Node

In addition to the compute nodes, the Condo2017 cluster also contains a "huge" memory node

Condo2017 Free Tier

The Condo2017 Free Tier is composed of 48 nodes from the cluster previously named ClusterOne, and prior to that named LHB-NGS and LHB-PS.  This cluster is running the RISA software repository, and is a good place to run MPI capable programs.

These nodes are slightly older than the regular compute nodes in the Condo cluster, and the processors are not as fast. This tier is being made available to any research group in the University as a way to become introduced to the HPC environment without an upfront cost commitment. 

Please email researchit@iastate.edu to obtain access.
