High Performance Computing (HPC) at Florida Institute of Technology

HPC Cluster is a set of computers working in parallel performing similar to a supercomputer for a fraction of the price. The HPC Cluster is made up of a cluster of nodes connected by a high-speed network that perform intense computing tasks. The cluster is connected to the external world through a single head node.

The Blueshark HPC cluster at Florida Institute of Technology is a 1,720 processor core IBM system, comprised of 63 compute nodes, 11 GPU nodes, 1 storage node and 1 head node, and it was funded by the National Science Foundation major Research Implementation grant.

The server allows people to run research and academic tasks in a non-clustered environment.

Departmental HPC Clusters are being used to facilitate specific needs of the department. Availability of the department clusters varies between each department.
