High Performance Research Computing

As research becomes more compute intensive, ARCC has made high performance compute a core service. This core service is currently being performed by  The Teton Compute Environment, allowing for researchers to perform computation-intensive analysis on large datasets. Using Teton, researchers have control over their data, projects, and collaborators. Built-in tools help users get up and running in a short amount of time, and the ability to request custom tools allows users to fine-tune their research procedures.


Teton Overview

The Teton Compute Environment, or Teton for short, is a high performance computing (HPC) cluster with over 500 compute nodes and a high performance data storage system. Teton was preceded by UWyo’s first community HPC cluster, Mount Moran, which went into service in 2012. The second generation of HPC at UWyo, Teton, first went into service in 2018 and is available to all research interests at UWyo. With over 1.2 PB of storage, Teton can accommodate some of the largest datasets. Isolated filesystems ensure that researchers have control of where their data are, and who can access it. Teton can be securely accessed anywhere, anytime with 98% expected uptime and SSH connectivity using UWyo two-factor authentication. No matter where you go, your research can go with you. Further details are available at the Teton Wiki Page.

 


Teton Filesystems

The Teton global filesystem has three main filesystems called home, project, and gscratch. The home area is for configuration files and software installations for each user, the project area is for collaboration among project members, and the gscratch area is for personal compute on larger datasets and is not backed up. Users with datasets on gscratch should remember to migrate them somewhere else once their computation is complete, or risk losing all their data. More information can be found on the Teton Wiki Page.

If users should ever need an increase in storage on Teton, please contact ARCC.


Teton Access

For research projects, UWyo faculty members (Principal Investigators or PIs) can request a Project be created on Teton. User Accounts on Teton require a valid UWyo email address and a UWyo-Affiliated PI sponsor. UWyo faculty members can sponsor their own accounts, while students, post-doctoral researchers, or research associates must use their PI as their sponsor. Non-UWyo external collaborators must be sponsored by a current UWyo faculty member.

Once access is granted, connection to Teton may be established via SSH. Note that SSH connection requires UWyo two-factor authentication.

To request a project be created on Teton, please fill out this form.


Citing Teton

A requirement of all allocations and use of HPC resources managed by ARCC, including Teton, is to acknowledge ARCC support for your research. Our ability to identify supported scientific results helps ensure continued support from the State of Wyoming, federal agencies and other sources for future HPC/HPS systems.

Teton Citation Formats

We request that you cite your use of the Teton system with the following citation format, based on the source of your allocation and modified as needed to conform with citation style guidelines. Most important, please include the Digital Object Identifier (DOI)https://doi.org/10.15786/M2FY47 — that is unique to Teton.

Specialty Clusters

For those with very specific compute needs, ARCC is here to support you with the option of specialty clusters. If this is something you are interested in, or would like to learn more, please contact ARCC or schedule an appointment to meet with ARCC staff.


 This core service is managed by the HPC & Systems Team. See who they are here.
