Computing Resources

Curtin University Exploration Geophysics has a local UNIX and PC computer network.

Linux Clusters

We have one Redhat Linux HPC (Cluster) running on Cisco Blade hardware. This forms the backbone of our computational resources.

The combined processing capacity of this system is 16 nodes, 368 CPUs, 4.8 TB of grid memory and over 90TB of online storage. These resources are frequently being upgraded with better performance hardware and higher capacity storage.

Microsoft Windows Workstations

We also have a range of local Servers with 140TB of active and archive local online Storage. Our local desktop computers include a number of high-end workstations used for data processing and modelling applications.
