BigGreen Cluster

BigGreen features 276 central processing unit cores, 552 gigabytes of memory and more than 10 terabytes of storage. Eight NVidia Tesla graphics processing units with 448 cores each provide support for massively parallel computation, pushing BigGreen to roughly six Teraflops—or six trillion floating point operations per second—of theoretical peak computing power. A variety of scientific software packages are installed and available for use on the cluster, including COMSOL, Multiphysics, Mathematica and CLC Genomics WorkBench.

BigGreen was made possible in part by a National Science Foundation grant that funds “Cyberinfrastructure for Transformational Scientific Discovery in West Virginia and Arkansas (CI-TRAIN),” a partnership among eight higher education institutions in West Virginia and Arkansas.

In 2015, the Campus Bridging team at Extreme Science and Engineering Discovery Environment (XSEDE) assisted rebuilding the cluster with XSEDE-Compatible Basic Cluster (XCBC).
