Private Cloud Computing Infrastructure

Make/model STONEPC-1210
Details The private Cloud computing environment includes High Performance Computing pool (for closely coupled computing tasks, e.g. Parallel Finite Element Analysis etc.), High Throughput Computing pool (for loosely coupled / distributed computing tasks, e.g. large scale energy related simulation/optimization/prediction etc.), Web Service based Contents Management environment and various Cloud computing middleware and services. The facility can provide 200+ CPU cores, about 1 Terabit shared memory, 10+ Terabit storage and 10 Gigabit main Internet connection speeds; if it needs. It includes 18 computing nodes, and 3 management nodes (used for Web Portal and interfaces purpose), and 2 dedicated high specification PCs for IPD and Virtual Reality facility (interfacing directly with Cloud Computing facility). This private Cloud will provide fundamental computing support for large scale engineering modelling, simulation, optimization and life cycle big data storage.
