Our main cluster is named Tiger. It is 5x the power of our old cluster (Dino). Dino's nodes are now merged with Tiger. These small nodes on Tiger are named cubs. Many small jobs will use the cubs automatically but you can also request them directly. Recommended RAM and number of core settings have changed for many programs. See details of individual programs on these web pages.
OverviewThe MGCF is in 175 Tan Hall and is available to the College of Chemistry and campus community. Operations are supported by modest access and use fees. Email the Facility Director, Dr. Kathleen Durkin, for more information.
Technical consulting is available on project feasibility, equipment and software use. The MGCF is a research resource in computational chemistry and scientific visualization for over 50 research groups in the College of Chemistry and the wider campus community.
We provide high-performance
computer graphics and computing resources for research and educational
uses in chemistry and related disciplines. The facility was founded in 1990 with NIH funding and has since
been supported through NIH, NSF and generous corporate sponsorship.
The MCGF provides computer resources for
researchers. There are 2 dedicated Kavli ENSI workstations in 175 Tan Hall
but Kavli ENSI researchers have full access to all MGCF resources as described
on these pages.
Chevron Instructional Facility:
Generously funded by Chevron and supporting undergraduate classes in the College of Chemistry,
this is the south half of 175 Tan Hall. It is managed for the College of Chemistry by
Faculty can request access for their classes from ETS.
New first year GSIs in the College of Chemistry can also obtain access.
