Wulver Overview

This cluster was approved for purchase with delivery expected in Dec 2022. Dell is providing the hardware, including assembly. The purchase includes management and support from X-ISS. The power and cooling requirements of this cluster exceed anything available at NJIT, so it will be co-located by a vendor specializing in HPC computational facilities. Dedicated fiber optic networking will connect the cluster to the campus. In mid-2023, some nodes from Lochness will be moved to Wulver.

Wulver Access

Wulver will be accessible to all faculty and staff by request. Students and guest access can be requested by faculty. Some nodes will be availalbe for reserved or high-priority access; policy and cost TBD.
