Facilities and Equipment

The SMARTEYES cluster is available for course projects. Primary features include a 5 meter display wall driven by 3 NVIDIA GeForce FX 4000 graphics cards. In addition, 32 2.0 GHz AMD Opteron processors and 14 3.0 GHz Intel Xeon processors are available for parallel processing. The cluster is currently configured using Rocks v4.2.1 an NSF-supported Linux distribution optimized for distributed visualization using DMX/Chromium and MPI.
