The Vermont Advanced Computing Core (VACC) is a High Performance Computing (HPC) core sponsored by the VP for Research's office and ETS.
The VACC provides researchers access to a large (250+-node, 4000+ CPU core) parallel computing cluster located on campus. "Bluemoon" is the name of the HPC cluster at the VACC. It is maintained in ETS data centers.
- 600TB GPFS ("Spectrum Scale") parallel clustered filesystem
- Flash acceleration for metadata and newly written files
- Large memory nodes: up to 1TB per node
- Low-latency Infiniband (FDR) for MPI or other types of IPC
- RedHat Enterprise Linux 7
