NOTICE: Deepthought has been updated to use the slurm queuing system. We will be updating the information here to reflect that shortly.
Provided through a Fiscal Year 2014 Technology Fee grant, the College of Computing operates Deepthought, a high-performance computing cluster which provides service to several CoC and ECE courses. Using this cluster, students learn high-performance and data-intensive computing through core, breadth, and elective courses. The Deepthought cluster is located in the College of Computing Building Data Center (CCB 247).

The Deepthought cluster consists of 19 compute nodes, with identical hardware configurations:
- 19 Supermicro nodes, each with: 2 AMD Abu Dhabi 16-core processors, 256GB memory, 10Gb Ethernet, QDR Infiniband
- Red Hat Enterprise Linux 6
- Slurm Workload Manager
- OpenMPI 1.8.1
- GCC 4.4
User Account Access:
- Authentication via Georgia Tech Enterprise Directory (GTED) credentials (not your CoC account).
- Only students in current semester CoC and ECE courses where the faculty member has requested access.
- Home directories are used by Instructional HPC clusters only.
- Student home directories are wiped at the end of each semester. Please ensure that you transfer your data to a more permanent location before your access expires.
