The Redhawk cluster is a general purpose research computing resource available to support the research community at Miami University. It is also available for use in instructional efforts, where appropriate.
The cluster consists of:
- Main login node with a Quad-core 2.26 Ghz Intel X5550 processor using Intel's EM64T (also known as Intel64) technology with 24 GB of memory and 150 GB of local disk space.
- 36 compute nodes - 32 nodes have dual Quad-core 2.26 Ghz Intel E5520 CPUs and 4 nodes have dual Quad-core 2.4 GHz Intel E5620 CPUs. All nodes have 24 GB of memory and 500 GB of local disk space.
- A shared file system with 15 terabytes (TB) of storage space that is shared to all nodes.
- A large memory node for interactive use with dual quad-core 2.26 Ghz Intel X5550 CPUs, 48 GB of memory and 150 GB of local disk space.
- A large number of software packages including Matlab and SAS. Contact the Research Computing Support (RCS) group for information about other software installed on the cluster or to request installation of needed software packages.
Cluster accounts are available for all Miami faculty members, and faculty members can sponsor accounts for students and other collaborators. Please e-mail the RCS group with any questions about accounts.

A tutorial clip on how to get started on the cluster is available here. Review the documents below to learn how to get started working with the Redhawk cluster. Please e-mail the RCS group with any questions. We can provide individual consulting on using the cluster and would be happy to talk to you about how the Redhawk cluster can aid your research.
To use graphical applications on the cluster, connect using the No Machine (also known as NX) software described in the documentation below.
