The Armis HPC cluster, in conjunction with Turbo Research Storage, provides a secure, scalable, and distributed computing environment that aligns with HIPAA privacy standards. The HPC environment is composed of a task-managing administrative nodes, standard Linux-based 2 and 4 socket server class hardware in a secure data center, connected by both a high-speed ethernet (1Gbps) and InfiniBand network (40Gbps), and a secure parallel filesystem for temporary data, provided by HIPAA-aligned Turbo Research Storage. Armis is currently provided as a pilot service.
IMPORTANT: Armis2 is the new Slurm-based HIPAA-aligned HPC cluster. Users should migrate their workflows from Armis to Armis2 by November 25, 2019. No jobs on Armis will run beyond that date.
