The new hybrid Oakley cluster at the Ohio Supercomputer Center is one of most computationally efficient academic systems in the nation.
The new system features more cores (8,328) on half as many nodes (694) as the center’s former flagship system, an IBM Cluster. The Oakley Cluster provides nearly twice the memory per core (4 gigabytes) than Glenn and three times the number of graphic processing units or ‘GPUs’ (128). Oakley also provides researchers with one and a half times the performance of the Glenn Cluster at just 60 percent of Glenn’s power consumption.
