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.
As you can see it barely fit into our elevators.
