The UNM Center for Advanced Research Computing (CARC) supports high performance and data intensive computing by the entire UNM community. Resources available to support this project include the 280-node/2240-core Wheeler capacity compute cluster, the 32-node Xena NVIDIA GPU cluster, and the 1.5PB Research Storage Consortium storage system.
These systems are housed in CARC's dedicated research data center with 2 UPS systems and 3 Liebert AC systems; together they provide 270 kVa of UPS capacity and 70 tons of dedicated cooling, maintaining a time window for riding out transient power loss or cleanly shutting down systems in the event of longer outages.
CARC systems are connected to campus by multiple 10G connections, including a dedicated 10G connection to UNM's Science DMZ research network. Wide-area Internet connectivity to UNM includes 100G connections to the DOE Energy Sciences Network (ESNet) and the Western Regional Network, both through the Albuquerque Gigapop.
