Zorro, the AU High-Performance Computing (HPC) System supports the
efforts of faculty and student researchers working with computationally
intensive projects. The HPC system consists of 15 nodes (and one head
node) each comprised of 12 Intel X5650 processors, with 24 GB of memory
and 120 GB hard drives that can be used for high-speed
parallel/distributed data processing. This structure allows researchers
to significantly reduce computational time by breaking down large jobs
into smaller, independent units, and simultaneously executing them. Jobs
that usually take days or weeks to run can now be completed in a matter
of a few hours.
CTRL is committed to providing services to all faculty and staff regardless of disability, and we will coordinate ways to bring services to an accessible location. Request an accessible meeting (x3862).
