The HPC Operations team is starting the process of gathering requirements for the next HPC cluster, Argon. The target date for the Argon system is Fall 2016.
We want your feedback to make the cluster as useful for your work as possible. You can participate by:
- Responding to our survey: https://uiowa.qualtrics.com/SE/?SID=SV_6QmunarsWAVGbc1
- Scheduling a 1-1 or small group meeting with a member of the team
- Sending an email to HPC-Sysadmins@uiowa.edu
- Attending feedback sessions (November 11th - UCC or November 12th - EMRB)
We will also be actively reaching out to individuals and groups who have purchased nodes in the Helium and Neon clusters.
If you want to include the cost of each node (on our new cluster) to the grant funding agencies, an approximate cost would be around $7500 for 16 core, 64 GB memory node. Please note that this is only approximate cost and may change in future.
Please email HPC-Sysadmins@uiowa.edu if you have any questions or concerns
