Overview of Carter
Carter was launched through an ITaP partnership with Intel in November 2011 and was a member of Purdue's Community Cluster Program. Carter consisted of HP compute nodes with two 8-core Intel Xeon-E5 processors (16 cores per node) and between 32 GB and 256 GB of memory. A few NVIDIA GPU-accelerated nodes were also available. All nodes had 56 Gbps FDR Infiniband connections and a 5-year warranty. Carter was decommissioned on April 30, 2017.
Carter was named in honor of Dennis Lee Carter, Purdue alumnus and creator of the "Intel Inside" campaign. More information about his life and impact on Purdue is available in an ITaP Biography of Carter.
