Big Red II at IU

IU Bloomington is home to the Big Red II supercomputer and was recently named the nation's "most wired" public university by PC Magazine.

Big Red II is a Cray XE6/XK7 supercomputer with a hybrid architecture providing a total of 1,020 compute nodes:

  • Big Red II at IU344 CPU-only compute nodes, each containing two AMD Opteron 16-core Abu Dhabi x86_64 CPUs and 64 GB of RAM

  • 676 CPU/GPU compute nodes, each containing one AMD Opteron 16-core Interlagos x86_64 CPU, one NVIDIA Tesla K20 GPU accelerator with a single Kepler GK110 GPU, and 32 GB of RAM

All compute nodes are connected through the Cray Gemini interconnect.
