CSDMS High Performance Computing Cluster

The CSDMS High Performance Computing Cluster (HPC), blanca.colorado.edu, provides CSDMS researchers a state-of-the-art supercomputing facility. Use of the CSDMS HPCC is available free of charge to the CSDMS community! Follow these guidelines to request a guest account on our machine.


CSDMS purchased its own compute nodes, or condos that operate as part of a cluster named Blanca. One condo contains the following specifications:

  • 2x 14-core 2.4 GHz Intel “Broadwell” processors
  • 128 GB RAM at 2400 MHz
  • 1x 1 TB 7200 RPM hard drive
  • 10 gigabit/s Ethernet

As of 03/05/2021, CSDMS owns 2 condos and has the intention to expend this with at least another 2 nodes for the 2018 academic year.
