Linux Cluster "Pople"

The Pople Linux Cluster consists of 17 compute nodes, with two 6-Core processors per node, for a total of 204 cores.  It is configured with 408 GB of total memory and 8TB of shared disk space.  The theoretical peak computational performance is 4.9 TFLOPS.  The system supports an 8 TB global, NFS file system. Nodes are interconnected with InfiniBand (40Gbit/sec point-to-point bandwidth).

Chemistry software installed on the cluster includes Amsterdam Density Functional (ADF), SPARTAN, QCHEM and other programs.

The cluster is maintained by the Research and Computing Center of the CAS and is available to researchers of the Department of Chemistry and Biochemistry.

Complete information on the cluster and user guide are available at the Arts & Sciences Pople Linux Cluster page.
