This research was funded in part by National Science Foundation awards OCI-0923037 "MRI: Acquisition of a Parallel Computing Cluster and Storage for the Marquette University Grid (MUGrid)" and CBET-0521602 "Acquisition of a Linux Cluster to Support College-Wide Research & Teaching Activities."
The following description of MUGrid and associated resources may be useful for inclusion in grant proposals:
Marquette University has created a campus grid named MUGrid connecting several computational resources. MUGrid consists of two parallel clusters--Pario a 164-core AMD Opteron cluster with 2 GB/core of RAM and 2 TB of disk space and Pere a 1024-core Intel Nehalem cluster with 3 GB/core of RAM and 50 TB of disk space--and over 500 opportunistic cores distributed across campus. Machines on the grid are connected via predominantly 1Gbit networking to a 10Gbit network backbone. The Condor high-throughput computing system serves as grid middleware. In total, over 10 TFLOPs of computational power are available. MUGrid is managed by an FTE in central IT services and overseen by a Research Computing Task Force consisting of faculty and IT representatives. Marquette University also participates in the TeraGrid Campus Champions program for access to national scale resources.
