CompCore is a College of Science core facility supporting computational research and parallel computing at CSU East Bay. It is available to all researchers in the Department of Math/Computer Science, the College of Science, and the university community. Located in the Valley Business and Technology building, the CompCore High Performance Computing Lab and Immersive Visualization Lab provide access, community, and training for “above baseline” computing and display capabilities at CSUEB.
- The Dijkstra cluster provides a platform for high performance computing. It currently consists of five 8-core machines (40 cores total) and will be growing soon. Dijkstra runs Rocks 5.3 with Centos 5.3.
Cluster status (from on-campus).
- The Hamming cluster (under construction) will provide support for virtualization technologies for cloud computing.
- The Immersive Display is a research project to create a camera-calibrated, wide-angle, projected display for visualizing and interacting with 3D datasets and simulations. It is driven by the Turing GPU cluster.
- A nine-panel plasma display wall is available for groups needing a large (12′x8′), high-resolution (3072×2304), Windows desktop. The panels feature additional RGB and composite inputs for use with conferencing equipment, as a video art exhibit/performance, etc.
- Several Linux workstations with GPUs are also available.
- The “workstation classroom” ScN336 is also available for use during slack periods as a GPU cluster. These machines feature quad-core CPUs and 256-core GPUs.
- Computer Science majors doing theses or independent studies are encouraged to exploit CompCore. Faculty researchers are especially welcome. Collaborations with all campus disciplines are sought. Contact: firstname.lastname@example.org
