Description: Five large memory compute nodes dedicated for XSEDE allocation. Each of these nodes have 40 cores (Broadwell class and lntel(R) Xeon(R) CPU E7-4820 v4 @ 2.00GHz with 4 sockets, 10 cores/socket), 3TB RAM, and 6TB SSD storage drives. The 5 dedicated XSEDE nodes will have exclusive access to approximately 300 TB of network attached disk storage. All these compute nodes are interconnected through a 100 Gigabit Ethernet (l00GbE) backbone and the cluster login and data transfer nodes will be connected through a 100Gb uplink to lnternet2 for external connections.
