MYRIAD Computer Cluster at CSSB
The Myriad cluster, co-designed with Penguin Computing, replaced the 1157 node IBM Razor system (4628 cores) at the end of 2009. Hosted in the same 1000sf/300KW facility built for the Razor cluster, the Myriad is denser and packs much more computing power, with 100 TFLOP theoretical maximum performance.
Totaling over 10,000 cores, each of Myriad's 410 compute nodes are powered by four 2.4GHz Six-Core AMD Opteron 8431 processors, 64GB of RAM and has both DDR Infiniband and Gigabit Ethernet connections. Fourteen shelves of Panasas storage with 120 storage blades and 34 director blades provide a 100TB of usable cluster file system with a bandwidth of over 6 GB/s. Qlogic's DDR Infiniband fabric is the primary interconnect for the cluster.
