Compute/Cluster Server Consolidation.

last modified Feb 11, 2013 05:21 PM
Work has completed to consolidate our current compute and cluster servers at the WBIC. By utilising the latest server technology we have reduced our current compute/cluster server count from 76 Servers to just 8, but this will constitute an increase of approx 50% more CPU/Memory processing power available, as well as reducing our energy footprint by 80%.

Work has completed to consolidate our current compute and cluster servers at the WBIC. By utilising the latest server technology we will be able to reduce our current compute/cluster server count from 76 Servers to just 8, but in turn this will constitute an increase of approx 50% more CPU/Memory processing power available than was previously, together with simplifying the current setup that has historically grown over time at the WBIC.

Compute servers:- The following servers are to be withdrawn from service(cs5,cs6,cs7,psych0,psych1,psych2,psych3,psych4,psych5,psych6,psych7,abi0,abi1,neurol2,neurol3,neurol4), and will be replaced with 4 new servers, cs1,cs2,cs3 and cs4 with each server benefitting from 16 CPU's and 32GB RAM.

Cluster Servers:- All the current cluster servers are to be withdrawn from service (cluster0-x,cluster1-x,cluster2-x,cluster3-x), and will be replaced with 4 new servers, cluster0-0, cluster1-0,cluster2-0 and cluster3-0 with each of these servers benefitting from 32 CPU's and 64GB RAM.
