Grid Computing Research LaboratoryState University of New York (SUNY) Binghamton
Department of Computer Science
The Grid Computing Group owns and/or uses the following computing resources:
16 dual processor 2.0 GHz Pentium 4
Xeons (for a total of 32 processors), with
1 GB DDR Ram and a 15K RPM 18GB Ultra-160 SCSI drive.
The nodes are connected by both
MyriNet 1280 (1.28 Gbit/s)
and Gigibit ethernet
The machines are served by a RAID File Server, which consists of 2 AMD Athlon MP 2400 Processors, Tyan Thunder K7X Pro (S2469GN) Extended ATX Motherboard, 12 Western Digital 200GB Caviar Special Edition Hard Drives.
This cluster is shared among several research faculty in the department, and was purchased with funds from NSF Award 9911099.
Our own Pu "Pop" Liu, won the
IBM North America Grid Scholars Challenge," earning
us an IBM eServer cluster, which we've named "PoP", in
This is a headless true cluster
of 4 identical nodes and 1 server. The server contains
a Dual 3.0 GHz Pentium 4 Xeon with 2 GB DDR RAM, a
15K RPM 36GB Ultra-320 SCSI Hard Drive, Gigabit
Ethernet (external), and Dual Gigabit Ethernet (internal)
The 4 nodes are 3.2 GHz Pentium 4 Xeons,
with 4 GB DDR RAM, 15K RPM 150GB Ultra-320 SCSI
Hard drive, and Dual Gigabit Ethernet (internal).
The machine runs SuSE SLE.
The Grid Group uses a small lab consisting of
eight Desktop PC's,
primarily for development projects.
These machines are Dell Dimension 4500 Series
Intel Pentium 4 Processors at 2.26GHz, with
1GB DDR SDRAM at 266MHz, and 80GB Ultra ATA/100
Hard Drives (7200 RPM).
