SuperMIC

SuperMIC (pronounced as Super Mick) is LSU's newest supercomputer funded by the National Science Foundation's (NSF) Major Research Instrumentation (MRI) award to the Center for Computation & Technology. When in production, 40 percent of its computational resources are reserved for participants in the Extreme Science and Engineering Discovery Environment (XSEDE), a virtual system that scientists can use to interactively share computing resources, data, and expertise.

SuperMIC is currently in the acquisition phase with an expected production date of June 1, 2014. It is expected to be a 1 PetaFlop cluster with 360 compute nodes each with two 10-core 2.8GHz Intel Ivy Bridge-EP processors, 64GB of memory and 2 Intel Xeon Phi 7120P coprocessors. In addition, 20 compute nodes will have two 10-core 2.8GHz Intel Ivy Bridge-EP processors, 64GB of memory, 1 Intel Xeon Phi 7120P coprocessor and 1 NVIDIA Tesla K20X. When in production mode, SuperMIC will be open for general use to LSU and XSEDE users. Allocation and Account request for XSEDE users will be processed from the XSEDE User Portal. LSU users will need to use their LSU HPC credentials to gain access to the SuperMIC. More details will follow in the coming months as we work toward getting the cluster into production.
