Stanford NNIN Computing Facility (SNCF)


Hardware description

SNCF hosts a PC cluster with 64 nodes, each with 2 quad core processors, for a total of 512 CPUs. 24 nodes are connected with high speed InfiniBand interconnects, and all of them are on a Gigabit network. The IB node has a memory of 2 GB/core, for a total memory of 16 GB/node, and the other nodes have 1 GB/core, for a total of 8 GB/node.


A wide range of simulation tools are installed for atomistic simulations. More software packages aimed at bridging the time and length scales are continuously added.
