Pinnacle is a new resource at the University of Arkansas in 2019. It consists of 100 Intel based nodes with 20 NVIDIA V100 GPU nodes enabling data science and machine learning and 8 big memory nodes with 768 Gb ram/each for projects requiring a large memory footprint.
Don't know command line? No problem! Pinnacle features the On Demand web portal (known as the Pinnacle Portal) that allows users to remotely log in to the system and directly access common applications,such as Matlab, Ovito, VMD and more, using the system GUI. The interface looks similar to what one would see on a standard desktop however the applications are directly accessing the Pinnacle cluster.
The Trestles system was originally acquired from San Diego Supercomputer Center and from the National Science Foundation in May 2015. As of November 2019, Trestles has become a large heterogenous system comprised of the original system plus resources from both Razor II and III. Now with over 500 nodes and 15,000+ cores, Trestles has expanded to meet the needs of the growing research community at the University of Arkansas. Trestles will continue to serve as a prominent resource as, due to its size, it is well positioned to handle a plethora of diverse needs where large scale computation is a vital component in realizing many research goals.
