The University of Tennessee’s Remote Data Analysis and Visualization (RDAV) Center has recently been upgraded their Nautilus visualization and analysis system to provide an access pathway for beginning supercomputer users.
Funded by the National Science Foundation (NSF), Nautilus is housed on the campus of the Oak Ridge National Laboratory. RDAV has added four SGI UV 10 units to the existing SGI UV 1000. This upgrade adds an additional 128 cores and 512 GB of memory to the system, bringing the overall total to 1152 cores and 4.5 TB of memory. This upgrade will allow more researchers to use high-performance computing (HPC) to analyze data.
These nodes will allow us to bridge the gap between novice and expert users, providing a pathway by which beginning users can gain the skills and knowledge necessary to scale to the largest datasets on the full Nautilus machine,” said RDAV Director Sean Ahern.
