Callisto: Your Evaluative HPC Resource

February 8, 2018

The Office of Research (OR) is proud to announce the upcoming broad availability of Callisto. This 640 core High Performance Cluster (HPC) – made possible as part of university restructuring – is now available as a research resource for evaluating methods, technologies, and processes to enhance funding submittals. OR is actively working with the Office of Information Technology (OIT) to relocate and reconfigure the hardware in the coming weeks. We have designed the reconfiguration around the execution of short term exploratory or prototyping projects and can rapidly assign resources to approved projects.

We will be evaluating project requests on the following criteria:

  • Project Duration
  • Compute Cores Requested
  • Memory Requested
  • Storage Requested
  • Eligibility on Alternate HPC (Ganymede, TACC, etc.)

We hope that this small, but capable, cluster is able to provide an advantage to proof of concept exploration, pre-funded process evaluation, or as a building block to additional HPC resources. Callisto enables each research team to have access to one or more Linux or Windows Virtual Machines on a Windows Hyper-V cluster powered by Dell with the following specifications:

  • 16 Nodes
    • 40 Cores
    • 64 GB of RAM
    • 10 GB networking
  • 100 TB of Storage
