Our Computing infrastructure

We provide the MRC WIMM with a high performance computing platform, offering researchers efficient ways to store, analyse, collaborate and publish large data sets. In addition, expert staff install complex bioinformatics packages that can be used by all researchers and provide help and advice in their usage.

The CCB cluster is a Linux CentOS 7 based environment which uses the open-source Slurm management system to schedule jobs: 

Nodes Cores each RAM each
Batch nodes 20 24 240GB
Large nodes 1 40 900GB
In addition, the cluster contains 4 x NVIDIA Titan RTX cards for parallel and multi-core tasks such as deep learning.

This core high-throughput analysis cluster is accessed via three login nodes and is surrounded by supporting infrastructure including a range of web and application servers, virtual machine hosting, and backup storage.
