Current System Design
Here is a diagram of our current system layout.
Black Systems represent physical hardware.
Blue Systems represent Virtual Machines
Arrows indicate which system a Virtual Machine is running on. Other hosts with VMWare capability can be used to fill in for the main Virtualization server during downtime.
Operating System is listed in italics beneath each system's name
Services are listed in the second row of the diagram, followed by the name of the software used to provide that service.
Endeavour is our massive 26-node computing cluster.
Gourd is a 2U rackmount server from Microway with two Quad-Core AMD Opteron processors and 32 GB of memory. It is the workhorse of the NPG server farm, hosting user's home folders as well as acting as the primary host for VMWare virtual machines.
Lentil is our backup server, and it is a custom built Dual-Core Pentium D machine with 2 GB of memory.
Pumpkin is a Microway 5U rackmount server with four Dual-Core AMD Opteron processors and 32 GB of memory. It is used primarily for data storage and computation.
Taro is a computation and data storage server with two Quad-Core Intel Xenon processors and 24 GB of memory. It also serves as a secondary host for virtual machines.
