UC Merced selects Advanced Clustering to build supercomputer

3 Jun 2015 Kansas City - University of California Merced has selected Advanced Clustering Technologies to build a cluster supercomputer that will support research at the institution.

The new supercomputer will help researchers at the university quickly and flexibly conduct their research projects while expanding the ability to answer the questions being asked, said Hrant Hratchian, Assistant Professor of Chemistry at UC Merced. "This new system will enable us to make scientific calculations much faster than was previously possible."

The supercomputer will be built using Advanced Clustering's Pinnacle Flex architecture, which is designed with performance, efficiency, flexibility and upgradeability in mind. Pinnacle Flex, which offers multiple configuration options to meet the most demanding computing needs, use servers based on the Intel Xeon processor E5 family.

Dedicated GPU nodes will help researchers accelerate their code. Advanced Clustering's online job submission tool, eQUEUE, not only enables batch job submissions, it also supports interactive GUI applications and remote visualization and provides detailed analytics and reporting to better manage the cluster and its users.

"We have enjoyed working with Hrant Hratchian and his team on this system, and we look forward to seeing what research comes from this new supercomputer", stated Jim Paugh, Director of Sales at Advanced Clustering. "With this new HPC system, UC Merced will give the university and its students the tools they need to maximize their research efforts."
