The High-Performance Computing (HPC) Facility provides the hardware and staff to support bioinformatics and biocomputational research. The central component of this facility is a large cluster of high-speed compute nodes, along with multi-terabyte storage.
The HPC cluster currently consists of ~600 computational slots (e.g. CPU's) spread across 23 servers. These cluster nodes are connected to an array of high-performance disks with a total capacity of 921 TB.
The current usage fees (billed monthly) are:
$ 0.08 per CPU-hour
$ 0.08 per GB per month
An account on the PGFI high-performance cluster and use of the facilities constitutes consent of the PGFI cluster Usage Policy.
For more technical information, see our internal HPC wiki.
