The CHIMERA system

The CHIMERA system; Blade-type PC cluster
(Cbrc HIgh perforMance clustER for massive Analysis)

The CHIMERA system is a blade-type PC cluster composed of 88 computational nodes. Each node is composed of a PC server (Intel Xeon E5540) of eight cores/16 threads.

For the filesystem, it is equipped with two file servers, by Lustre (user space 60TB) and ZFS (user space 200TB), and it is connected from the computational node by Flex-10 (10GbE) infrastructure.

We utilize this system in genome analysis, protein structure/function prediction, analysis of subcellular networks, and calculations of molecular dynamics/docking/quantum chemistry.
