Darter

As computational techniques become important to an increasing number of research fields, interest in maintaining computational resources for research groups has grown across campus. In order to facilitate compute intensive research being undertaken at the University of Tennessee, Knoxville and its collaborating institutions, JICS acquired a new supercomputer named after the Snail Darter fish that is found in East Tennessee freshwater in the United States, that has a peak performance of 250 Tflops (1012 floating point operations per second).

This system is a Cray XC30 system (previously known as Cascade) with Aries and Sonexion technology for the interconnect and storage respectively, that provide both high scalability and sustained performance.

See the configuration page for more details.
