The Great Lakes Slurm cluster is a new, campus-wide computing cluster that will serve the broad needs of researchers across the university. The Great Lakes HPC Cluster has replaced Flux, the shared research computing cluster that currently serves over 300 research projects and 2,500 active users.
The Great Lakes HPC Cluster is available to all researchers on campus for simulation, modeling, machine learning, data science, genomics, and more. The platform provides a balanced combination of computing power, I/O performance, storage capability, and accelerators.
Based on extensive input from faculty and other stakeholders across campus, the Great Lakes HPC Cluster is designed to deliver similar services and capabilities as Flux, including access to GPUs and large-memory nodes and improved support for emerging uses such as machine learning and genomics. The Great Lakes HPC Cluster consists of approximately 13,000 cores.
