XSEDE Cyberinfrastructure Resource Integration at South Dakota State University

Jul 26, 2017

XSEDE Capability and Resource Integration staff assisted in building a new HPC cluster at South Dakota State University in Brookings, South Dakota.  Kevin Brandt, manager of the Networking and Research Computing team at SDSU, reached out to campus bridging staff asking for guidance on upgrading their existing cluster, BigJack, using the tools provided by XSEDE. The new cluster, named Campanile, will eventually integrate the nodes currently used in BigJack, resulting in a final size of 71 nodes, with 3360 TB of total RAM and 840 total cores.
