Idaho National Lab


Scientific Computing

Idaho National Laboratory answers DOE’s most complex
energy-related science and engineering questions through the
synergistic use of theory, experiment, and advanced modeling and
simulation. The MOOSE multiphysics framework is providing national
leadership in modeling, simulation, and computational science.
Appropriately configured computer resources are critical to success in
these efforts. Scientific computing resources at  INL include HPC
compute cores, networking infrastructure, data storage, and


Falcon, installed in 2014, is INL's flagship cluster with over 600 TFlops of performance. It is a 25,056-core SGI ICE-X distributed memory system,with 121.5 TB total memory and an FDR InfiniBand Network (56 Gbit/s),

Data storage includes high-speed scratch storage from Panasas and
home directory storage from Isilon

Visualization resources include a four-sided CAVE as well as several high-resolution powerwalls.
