What is a computer cluster?

A computer cluster is a set of loosely or tightly connected computers that work together so that, in many respects, they can be viewed as a single system. The components of a cluster are usually connected to each other through fast local area networks, with each node (computer used as a server) running its own instance of an operating system.

Computer cluster at UP FAMNIT

The coputing cluster at UP FAMNIT consists of 24 computers with 16 CPU cores, 32 threads capability and 32 GB of RAM and a GPU unit. In total the cluster is capable of computing 768 processes in parallel. Each computing node consists of an AMD Threadripper CPU, 32 GB RAM, NVME disk and an NVIDIA GTX 1080ti GPU.
