computingThe Center for Plant Systems Biology is supporting a large Bioinformatics research group. The computing power needed to analyze the huge amount of genomic data is provided by a 14-compute nodes, 482-compute cores Linux cluster with a total of 3300 GB memory.



Biocomputing Linux cluster

  • Dell servers and blades
  • one dedicated master node, two submit nodes
  • 14 compute nodes, 482 compute cores
  • around 7 GB memory per compute core
  • Linux RH5 and Sun Gridware 6.2
  • Linux Redhat/Centeos with the Sun Gridware 6.2 job scheduler
  • Tiered Big Data storage on scale-out platforms, NGS scratch and NGS source data
