Eagle System

Eagle is the high-performance computing (HPC) system planned to be available to users early 2019. Learn whether it has the capabilities to meet your research modeling, simulation, and visualization needs.

Eagle is configured to run compute-intensive and parallel computing jobs. It is a cluster comprised of 2114 nodes (servers) that run the Linux operating system (Red Had Linux or the derivative CentOS distribution), with a peak performance of 8 PetaFLOPS.

The nodes are connected to each other and to storage by a high-speed 100Gb/s EDR InfiniBand network. All nodes and storage are connected using an enhanced 8-dimensional hypercube topology that provides a bisection bandwidth of 26.4 terabytes/s.

Eagle has NFS file systems for home directories and application software as well as a 14 petabyte high-speed Lustre file system for parallel I/O.
