Development of a Beowulf-Class High Performance Computing System for Computational Science Applications

Rafael Saldaña, Jerrold Garcia, Felix Muga II, William Yu


Using Beowulf cluster computing technology, the Ateneo High Performance Computing Group has developed a high performance computing system consisting of eight compute nodes. Called the AGILA HPCS this Beowulf cluster computer is designed for computational science applications. In this paper, we present the motivation for the AGILA HPCS and some results on its performance evaluation.
