Red Barn Technology Group has been contracted by the Institute for Computational Sustainability (ICS) at Cornell University to provide their most powerful supercomputer to date.
Atlas will have 684 processing cores, over 3,300 Gigabytes of memory and 36 Terabytes of active storage. The heterogeneous system also includes four nVidia Tesla GP-GPU's (general purpose GPU) adding another 2,048 processing cores, and 2,660 Gigaflops of double precision floating point performance.
According to one of the members of the research team, Theodoros Damoulas, Red Barn HPC was able to offer the solution that was needed, winning over several other competitors. The track record and recommendations for Red Barn made this an easy decision for ICS.
The ICS was established in 2008 and encompasses multiple institutions and organizations across the country. ICS was funded through a large NSF Expeditions in Computing Award in order to inject computational thinking into sustainability and to establish a new field of research which is focused on computational methods for balancing environmental, economic, and societal needs for a sustainable future.
