TeraStat is the HPC infrastructure developed by the Department of Statistical Sciences (DSS) in collaboration with CINECA for the resolution of mathematical and statistical models on big data.
TeraStat is currently equipped with six computational nodes for an overall number of 144 cores, roughly equivalent to 1,5 TeraFlop/sec. The access to TeraStat is granted to all the members of DSS, as well as to other researchers working at Sapienza according to the rules described at the following link.
During 2015, the TeraStat cluster has been improved thanks to the TeraGPU project, developed in collaboration with the Dipartimento di Ingegneria informatica Automatica e Gestionale, with the Dipartimento di Informatica and with Dipartimento di Ingegneria dell'Informazione, Elettronica e Telecomunicazioni of La Sapienza. This improvement consisted in the addition of four more computing nodes, thus bringing the overall number of cores to 206, roughly equivalent to 3 TeraFlop/sec.
