Distributed & Parallel Computing Cluster

Getting Started

The Distributed and Parallel Computing cluster (DPCC) has been funded by the National Science Foundation (NSF) through a Major Research Instrumentation grant along with matching funds from the University. The goal of the system is to create a computing infrastructure to support a multitude of activities including Streaming databases, Data Mining, Video streaming, Skin lesion database with Image processing, processing of data for two Particle Physics Collider experiments as well as being a tool in education and outreach.  The principal investigator for the grant is Dr. Sharma Charkravarthy and is joined by 9 other CSE facluty, 2 members of the UTA Physics Department and a faculty member of UT Southwest Medical Center at Dallas

The cluster currently contains 97 machines, 193 processors, 190GB RAM and over 72TB (7.2X1013 bytes) of disk storage.  Future plans for the cluster include the acquisition of a number of networking test instruments and a Shared Memory Processing system (SMP).
