Boston University’s College of Engineering, the Center for Computational Science (CCS), Information Systems & Technology (IS&T) and the Bioinformatics Program are introducing a significant expansion to the facilities for research computing with the acquisition of a 160 GPU-accelerated cluster. At 80 teraflop/s in peak double-precision performance, this system will be the fastest ever deployed at Boston University.
The new computing resource was made possible by the investment of IS&T funds, a contribution from the CCS and a donation by Hewlett Packard of the 160 GPU cards, valued at $320,000.
