Overview of WinHPC

WinHPC was a compute cluster operated by ITaP, and a member of Purdue's Community Cluster Program. WinHPC went into production on December 1, 2011. WinHPC consisted of HP compute nodes with two 12-core AMD Opteron 6172 processors (24 cores per node) and 48 GB of memory. All nodes had 10 Gigabit Ethernet interconnects and a 5-year warranty. WinHPC was decommissioned on October 1, 2016.

12 Two 2.3 GHz 12-Core AMD 6176 24 48 GB 10 GigE

WinHPC nodes run Windows HPC 2008 R2 and use the Windows HPC Job Manager for resource and job management. The application of operating system patches occurs as security needs dictate. All nodes allow for unlimited stack usage, as well as unlimited core dump size (though disk space and server quotas may still be a limiting factor).
