Bridges User Guide

 

System Configuration

Bridges contains login, database, web server and data transfer nodes in addition to its  computational nodes.  There are four types of computational nodes:

  • Regular Shared Memory (RSM) nodes with 128GB RAM each.  
  • Regular Shared Memory nodes with 128GB RAM and GPUs (RSM-GPU).
  • Large Shared Memory (LSM) nodes with 3TB RAM each
  • Extreme Shared Memory (ESM) nodes with 12TB RAM each

Bridges' computational nodes supply 1.3018 Pf/s and 274 TiB RAM.  The Bridges system also includes more than 6PB of node-local storage and 10PB of shared storage in the Pylon file system.
