Adding HPC cluster nodes / Rocket cluster account

Rocket is a heterogeneous HPC cluster that currently consists of about 175 compute nodes, featuring almost 7000 cores, a bit over 40 terabytes of memory and 40 GPUs, interconnected by high-speed low-latency InfiniBand networking. The cluster also utilizes two General Parallel File systems, which in sum total provide almost 10 petabytes of usable storage space.

  • To order a Rocket cluster account select ’HPC’ category in the ’Marketplace’.
  • Choose the ’Rocket (UT HPC)’ from the HPC resources list.
  • Once filled and validated ’Allocation name’ and ’Allocation description’ fields, click on ’Add to cart’ to proceed to provision.
