Local HPC resources available:
Lipscomb High Performance Computing Cluster (dlx.uky.edu)
The Lipscomb cluster is the backbone of the HPC facility. The cluster is built from a large number of commodity servers, a high speed interconnect, a unified file system, and a large mass storage system. For details on the cluster hardware, please refer to the Hardware page.
The Xgrid software from Apple, Inc. allows the use of idle Macintosh computers for distributed computing. At the University of Kentucky 322 machines currently participate in the Xgrid. These 322 machines have 1,417 processors which, if all are available, give a computing capacity of 3.74 TF. For more information, see the Xgrid web page.
