MSU has installed the largest super computer in the state of Montana, a Research Computing Cluster, called Hyalite. This is a fairly small cluster, composed of 65 nodes (64 regular and 1 extra-high capacity), for a total of 1080 cores (2120 hyper-threaded). Those nodes can crank out about 18 TeraFlops of computing power. There is also 620 TB of Lustre storage available on the cluster. Hyalite was installed by a UK based company called BIOS-IT, and is supported by UIT. Hyalite has been expanded multiple times since it's initial installation in December 2014, and was initially composed of only 36 nodes.
Hyalite is available to all MSU researchers, the only requirement being a session of basic training. If you are interested and would like more information, or are interested in using Hyalite in your research, please email Research Cyberinfrastructure at email@example.com.
