In this WGRZ video, researchers describe supercomputing at the Center for Computational Research at the University of Buffalo.
“The Center’s extensive computing facilities, which are housed in a state-of-the-art 4000 sq ft machine room, include a generally accessible (to all UB researchers) Linux cluster with more than 8000 processor cores and QDR Infiniband, a subset (32) of which contain (64) NVidia Tesla M2050 “Fermi” graphics processing units (GPUs). Industrial partners of the University have access to a cluster with more than 3400 processor cores and FDR Infiniband. The Center maintains a 3PB IBM GPFS high-performance parallel file system. The computer visualization laboratory features a tiled display wall, and a VisDuo passive stereo system. A leading academic supercomputing facility, CCR has more than 170 Tflops of peak performance compute capacity. CCR additionally hosts a number of clusters and specialized storage devices for various specific departments, projects, and collaborations, interested researchers should contact CCR staff.”
