High Performance Computing Resources
The SGI Altrix 4700 is the latest addition to ECU's continuing high-performance computing (HPC) and research computing efforts. Our other HPC machines SGI Prism and Origin 350 computers with hardware and software solutions specifically optimized for complex technical research computing tasks, the 4700 has 64-CPUs, high I/O and system bandwidth, a terabyte of shared memory capacity, 14 terabytes of storage, and extensive graphics capabilities. These all combine to make the 4700 a powerful resource for solving large, complex problems as well as providing easy integration with educational visualization and data management.
