CSIRO Plans to Renew its High Performance Cluster

Australian Commonwealth Scientific and Research Organization's ASC division is planning to refurbish its IBM e1350-based high performance compute cluster positioned at the Bureau of Meteorology, Victoria.

The renewal cost has been estimated to be $840,000. The objective of renewing the cluster is to increase its efficiency in order for it to provide more specialized services for the Mathematics, Informatics and Statistics department and to assist in commercial -in- confidence computing. It will also be beneficial in giving access to the dedicated and specialized software, which is not being provided on the systems possessed by CSIRO associates.

For the application of Marine & Atmospheric Research's relocatable ocean atmosphere model, cluster would play the role of a development platform and would amalgamate with the ASC's Data Store located at Docklands.

CSIRO's ASC spokesman said, "These systems are broken down into four node configurations, 41 nodes have two GB of memory, 28 nodes have four GB of memory, 28 nodes have two GB of memory, Intel64 processors, more disk and Infiniband interconnect, and 26 nodes have eight GB of memory, more disk and faster Intel64 processors".
