The UNM Center for Advanced Research Computing (CARC) supports high performance and
In addition, CARC and UNM Libraries also host a VMWare/Cisco/Netapp virtual machine infrastructure that provides support for custom research applications and data storage/management. CARC PIs augment this system with the compute, storage, and software resources needed by their application, PI-focused IT personnel
All of 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. Systems in this data center 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.
A summary of CARC compute resources can be found in the table on the systems page.
