High Performance Computing Cluster

The OpenMind computing cluster was established in 2014 to provide the MIT brain research community with access to state-of-art computing resources.  The cluster is housed at the Massachusetts Green High Performance Computing Center (MGHPCC) in Holyoke, MA, with a 10G link to the MIT campus.

OpenMind is a Linux-based cluster with both CPU and GPU nodes, plus 483Tb of storage.  It operates at over 90% efficiency. Further expansion is anticipated within the coming year.  Detailed specifications can be found here, and on this wiki (MIT certificate required).

The cluster is operated by the McGovern Institute as a shared resource for neuroscience and cognitive science researchers at MIT, including but not confined to those affiliated with the McGovern Institute.  Prospective users should begin by registering for a user account as described here (MIT certificate required).
