CSC Galaxy Cluster

The CSC cluster, named Galaxy, consists of 256 Intel P3 and P4 processors running at speeds up to 2.4 GHz. Arranged in dual processor nodes, most have 1 Gbyte of memory per node. A RAID storage facility with 1.4 terabytes of disk is attached to this machine. Parallel computations are performed using the message passing interface, MPI (http://www-unix.mcs.anl.gov/mpi) and through threads using Open MP.

The Galaxy computer provides computing cycles to CSC affiliates and projects. Convenient and assured access to local parallel computing is an essential requirement for the development of parallel simulation codes, and it is thus a key component of the CSC strategy to make state-of-the-art computing technology available to benefit BNL scientific programs.
