1. IMAN1-Booster/King

Both of booster (IMAN1-01-PS3) and King (IMAN1-02-PS3) Clusters are HPC clusters based on the IBM CELL Processor (8 C SPEs + 1 PPE). Booster cluster is a small scale cluster consisted of five PlayStations (PS3) used to run pilot projects and to make a prove of concept for code porting on this architecture. However, the successful jobs are moved to the large-scale cluster "King (IMAN1-02-PS3)", which is consisted of 2260 PlayStation. more technical information is provided below: 

    • Server: 2260 X Sony Playstation3
    • CPU per server: 1 X 1 PPE (Power Processing Element), 64-bit PowerPC
    • RAM per server: 256MB XDR DRAM
    • Total storage (TB): 1 TB NFS Share 
    • Accelerators type: 8 X SPE (Synergistic Processing Element)
    • OS: Yellow Dog Linux 6.2
