    3 == Cypress ==
     3The Tulane University High Performance Computing system, code named “Cypress,” is one of
     4the fastest computers in the world. In November 2014, the TOP500 ranked Cypress as the 271st
     5supercomputer site in the world. It is the 3rd fastest among private American universities and
     610th fastest among across all American universities.

    5 Cypress is Tulane's newest HPC cluster, offered by Technology Services for use by the Tulane research community.
     8Cypress is located in the Tulane datacenter in Downtown New Orleans. It is composed of Dell
     9state-of-the-art technology, using Intel Ivy Bridge CPU, Intel Xeon Phi Coprocessor, and Lustre
     10file system running on Dell’s Terascala storage technology. The components of Cypress were
     11carefully selected to provide consistent performance over a wide range of scientific applications.
     12Cypress delivers a peak general capability of 369Teraflops and incorporates 11.84TB of fast
     13main memory with 1.476 Petabyte of parallel-distributed file system Lustre high-performance
     14storage, 480TB of which is dedicated to Hadoop with IEEL (Intel Enterprise Edition for Lustre)
     15high performance storage for use by the Hadoop data analytics queue.
