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.

The state-of-the-art Red Barn HPC Super Computer, code named "Atlas", will enable large-scale data-driven computations in areas as diverse as the study of wildlife reservation corridors, policies for management of fisheries, climate change and land-cover prediction in the Arctic, automatic acoustic detection and classification of bird vocalizations, poverty mapping, optimal survey design for citizen science, and computational material discovery.

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.

Red Barn Technology Group, Inc, under the name of Red Barn HPC, specializes in Multi-Processor Systems, GPU Supercomputers, Compute Clusters, Workstations, Servers and Storage Systems, providing solutions for research and academic institutions nationwide
