Computational Capability

The core of the REFTAS laboratory computational resources are four Intel quad-core Core I7 computational nodes each with 16 GB of RAM each and an Intel quad-core Core2 node with 8 gigabytes of RAM. Each node is is running a Linux environment and is operating in parallel as a Beowulf cluster using the MPI message passing protocol. This cluster is supported by numerous Intel Pentium and Core2 class workstations running both the Linux and Microsoft Windows operating systems. Additional computational time is also available on the Oklahoma State University High Performance Computing Center cluster of 512 compute cores with 1024 GB of RAM running the Linux operating system in a Beowulf cluster using the MPI message passing protocol.
