The Los Alamos National Laboratory has implemented a Cray-built computing machine that works to help lab researchers access and manage unclassified data from science research projects.
Wolf is built with Intel’s eight-core Sandybridge processors and an Infiniband networking technology and designed to provide up to 19.7 terabytes of data storage, the lab said Tuesday.
The system contains 9,856 compute nodes and has been integrated with the lab’s parallel file system, according to the lab.
Los Alamos scientists intend to use the technology to generate climate, material and astrophysic models.
The facility works with government organizations to build national security tools and seeks to bolster collaborative research in technical fields through its institutional computing program.
