Triton User Guide
The UCSD Triton Resource at SDSC is a new high-performance, data-centric compute resource for UCSD faculty research, that is also available to other UC campuses and to governmental, educational, and private industry. The resource features exceptional data analysis capabilities and short wait times at extremely reasonable cost to users.
The resource comprises three major components: a Petascale Data Analysis Facility, a Compute (Condo) Cluster, and a Data Oasis. Each offers an exciting and unique set of capabilities designed to support data analysis demands on a scale with today's most demanding and data-intensive processing tasks. The multiprotocol nature of the Myrinet switch enables Triton Resource high-speed fabric connections to a number of 10-gigabit ethernet networks, including the OptIPuter/Quartzite Research Network, the UCSD Campus Research Network, and the UCSD production network.
