Our new computer cluster, Helium, arrived yesterday!

This little stack of metal and silicon packs 20 nodes with 2 Intel Xeon E5-2650 v2 CPUs and 128 GB of RAM, connected by a QDR Infiniband switch (for a total of 320 cores). Helium is a cluster in progress. Once RAM is cheaper we are going to add a few more nodes (12) with 256 GB of memory.

Helium packed

As you can see it barely fit into our elevators.

  1. Wow! It’s great!

  2. Your vendor seems to use exactly the same chassis as mine 🙂
