Welcome to the University of Massachusetts Green High Performance Computing Cluster

For questions about, or problems with, GHPCC please email hpcc-support@umassmed.edu

Upcoming Maintenance

  • Regular maintenance is scheduled for the first Wednesday of every month from 9AM through 5PM as needed.

Recent Announcements

We are happy to announce that we have purchased and installed additional cores for our GHPC cluster. We now have in excess of 10,000 cores in the cluster. The breakdown of the cores added include:

  • 3072 new AMD cores – 48 new Nodes: Each AMD node contains 64 cores, and 512GB RAM
  • 960 new Intel cores – 48 new Nodes: Each Intel node contains 20 cores, and 196GB RAM
  • 6 new NVIDIA Tesla K80 GPU nodes, each pair contain Intel CPUs (20 cores) and 256GB RAM

The new AMD nodes were added into the cluster two weeks ago and have been heavily used. There are no changes required during job submissions to access these new nodes.

The new Intel blades will be activated and added to the queues on Friday Feb 27th 2015 due to the minor OS changes required.

Known issues

  • Your password is locally stored and exclusive to the cluster. It is not tied to your campus password.

GHPCC

Current Resources (NIH formatted)

Analysis of high throughput sequencing data is performed on a shared high performance computer cluster with 14,376 cores available (Intel and AMD), and 660TBs of high performance EMC Isilon X series storage and 513TBs of Farline storage. The Massachusetts Green High Performance Computing Cluster is located in Holyoke MA and provides computing to the five University of Massachusetts Campuses. The UMass Shared Services Cluster includes equipment (cores and storage) contributed by each UMass campus as well as jointly funded components (LAN, Scheduler Software, IDM services and support staff). The High Performance Computing Cluster (HPCC) consists of the following hardware: an FDR based Infiniband (IB) network and a 10GE network for the storage environment, qty 9 (42) GPU nodes (Intel with 256GB RAM) with two NVIDIA Tesla C2075 - GPU computing processor - Tesla C2075 - 6 GB GDDR5 - PCI Express 2.0 x16 units or K80 GPUs, qty thirteen (13) AMD Opteron(tm) Processor 6380 based Dell chassis with 64 cores / 512GB RAM per blade (48 blades), qty seven (7) AMD (2x AMD Opteron 6278, 2.4GHz, 16C, Turbo CORE, 16M L2/16M L3, 1600Mhz ) based Dell chassis with 64 cores / 512GB RAM per blade (42 blades), qty (3) Intel(R) Xeon(R) CPU E5-2650 v3 @ 2.30GHz, QPI, Turbo, 20c, qty nine (9) Intel (Xeon E5-2650 2.00GHz, 20M Cache, 8.0GT/s QPI, Turbo, 8C, 95W, Max Mem 1600MHz) based chassis with 16 cores / 196GB RAM per blade (16 blades), qty two (2) SGI UV200 with 512 Intel (Intel® Xeon® processor E5-4600) cores and 4TBs of fully addressable memory, qty one (1) AMD based Dell chassis with 128 cores Quad-Core AMD Opteron(tm) Processor 2376 and 256GB RAM, qty three (3) Intel (six-core Intel(R) Xeon(R) CPU X5650 @ 2.67GHz ) based Dell chassis with 12 cores / 48GB RAM per blade (16 blades). The HPC environment runs the IBM LSF scheduling software for job management. The Massachusetts Green High Performance Computer Center (MGHPCC) facility has space, power, and cooling capacity to support 680 racks of computing and storage equipment, drawing up to 15MW of power. High speed network connections to the facility are available via dark fiber, the Northern Crossroads, and Internet 2. The MGHPCC facility has been awarded LEED Platinum status.
