    • 101 × dual Haswell E5-2670v3 12-core 2.3 GHz, 64 GB RAM (46 OSCER, 55 “condominium” nodes owned by individual research teams)
  • Accelerator-capable Compute nodes
    • PowerEdge R730
    • 4 × dual Haswell E5-2650v3 10-core 2.3 GHz, 32 GB RAM, dual NVIDIA K20M accelerator cards (3 OSCER, 1 condominium)
    • 12 × dual Haswell E5-2650v3 10-core 2.3 GHz, 32 GB RAM, dual Intel Xeon Phi MIC 31S1P accelerator cards (all OSCER)
    • 13 × dual Haswell E5-2650v3 10-core 2.3 GHz, 32 GB RAM, no accelerator cards (all OSCER)
    • 5 × dual Haswell E5-2670v3 12-core 2.3 GHz, 64 GB RAM, no accelerator cards (all OSCER)
  • Large Memory Nodes
    • PowerEdge R930
    • 1 × quad Haswell E7-4809v3 8-core 2.0 GHz, 1 TB RAM (OSCER)
  • Storage
    • High performance parallel filesystem, global user-accessible: DataDirect Networks Exascaler SFX7700X, 70 SATA 6 TB disk drives, ~305 TB useable
    • Lower performance servers full of disk drives, global user-accessibe: ~150 TB useable
  • Networks
    • Infiniband: Mellanox FDR10 40 Gbps, 3:1 oversubscribed (13.33 Gbps)
      NOTE: 76 compute nodes don’t have Infiniband, at the owner’s discretion.
    • Ethernet: Gigabit Ethernet (GigE) to each compute node, uplinked to a top-of-rack GigE switch, and each GigE switch uplinked at 2 × 10 Gbps Ethernet (10GE) to a pair of 10GE core switches.
  • Operating system
    • CentOS 7
    • Batch scheduler is SLURM
    • Compiler families include Intel, Portland Group (now part of NVIDIA) and GNU, as well as the NAG Fortran compiler.
  • Schooner is connected to Internet2 and to Internet2’s 100 Gbps national research backbone (Advanced Layer 2 Services)
