System Overview

Beta is a preview cluster that allows users to become familiar with SchedMD’s Slurm Workload Manager, which will be used in our upcoming Great Lakes cluster. All standard compute nodes in the Beta cluster have 16 core Intel(R) Xeon(R) CPU E5-2670 processors at 2.60GHz and 64GB memory. There is one GPU node with 8 K20x GPUs.  Beta will leverage some existing infrastructure (minimal software via modules, storage, etc).
