Los Alamos National Laboratory recently installed a new high-performance computer system, called Wolf, which will be used for unclassified research. Wolf will help modernize mid-tier resources available to the lab and can be used to advance many fields of science.
Wolf, manufactured by Cray Inc., has 616 compute nodes, each with two 8-core 2.6 GHz Intel “Sandybridge” processors, 64 GB of memory and a high-speed Infiniband interconnect network. It utilizes LANL's existing Panasas parallel file system as well as a new one based on Lustre technology.
