East Carolina's SGI Altix 4700 (Jasta) high performance computer has 64 dual-core Itainium2 processors, 128 GB of memory and 10 terabyte of disk space. The Altix 4700 is comprised of interchangeable compute, memory, I/O and special purpose blades for "plug and solve" configuration flexibility. The Altix is a ccNUMA system which means that the address space is shared between all processors. This shared memory cluster environment is most suitable for the scientific and engineering calculations performed by East Carolina researchers.
