Computing power at Georgia tech’s College of Computing is getting a major boost.
The College said Tuesday it has deployed two supercomputing clusters from Dell. The clusters are made up of 64 and 128 Dell PowerEdge 1850 model servers.
For projects requiring additional processing power, the two clusters can be joined to produce up to 2.5 trillion floating point operations (TFLOPS) per second.
“Industry-standard processors and novel distributed architectures are key to our supercomputing strategy,” said Rich DeMillo, dean of the College of Computing at Georgia Tech. “Dell is an increasingly important partner in this effort. The clusters we have installed will enable new scientific discoveries that would have been impossible only five years ago.”
Researchers plan to utilize the clusters for research into aircraft design and future computer chips, the college said.
