The management server has this specification
The eight compute servers each have this specification
All of the servers are installed in the University House Data Centre at the University of Warwick.
WISB researcher’s computational tasks can be deployed on these servers using the Slurm Workload Manager. More complex services can be deployed using the Kubernetes container orchestration platform.
The storage server and the backup server have the following specification
The Operating System used on these storage servers is FreeBSD 10. The Z File System (ZFS) is used to store the data. The file system is constructed using a pool containing two nine-disk RAIDZ2 virtual devices. This provides redundancy in the case of disk failure. Regular snapshots of the data are created and transferred to the backup storage server.
Data originating from two primary sources is stored on these servers
After the initial installation there is 47.96 TiB of space available. As it becomes necessary, new hard disk drives will be added to increase the space available to a maximum of approximately 200 TiB.
The storage server is generally accessible on RTF equipment computers through mapped network drives.
