The “Computing On Kepler Architectures” (COKA) is a computing cluster funded by the University of Ferrara with the support of INFN.
The cluster has four computing nodes, each powered by 2x 8-core Intel Xeon CPUs and 8x dual-GPU K80 NVIDIA accelerator cards.
Each node is tightly interconnected with two interfaces to an Infiniband switched network. The peak computing performance of the cluster is in the order of 100Tflops. This system is intended to support applications development, optimization and test in the fields of computational physics, parallel algorithms, and numerical simulations carried out by research groups of University of Ferrara and INFN.
