We have a new general-purpose computation server for the department, anatolius. Anatolius - named for the same St. Anatolius of Alexandria, the ancient mathematician and philosopher who inspired the suspended statue in Hamilton Hall - is a virtual server whose configuration will change as resources become available. At present, the server has ...
- Processors: eight Intel Xeon X5650 @ 2.67GHz
- RAM: 24Gb
- Scratch disk: 80Gb
Software on anatolius includes ...
- R (with BioCondcutor)
- Fortran77, Fortran90
In the next week or two, we will be adding another one or three virtual compute servers - with up to eight processors. By the end of the Summer, anatolius should have twelve to sixteen processors.
Bayes - an eight-processor Xeon MP with 16Gb RAM - is stil available for stats use, but it is not nearly as fast as anatolius.
