This year we stood up the Carnac cluster to serve as an institutional platform for hosting large-scale Emulytics experiments. Carnac has 288 compute nodes that are connected by a 100GigE Arista core switch. This system is rather unique in that it features a reservation system that allows users to schedule bare metal jobs (eg, you can request 100 bare metal nodes be allocated next week for two days and provisioned with a customized OS). We were asked to put the following blurb together for the Sandia HPC Annual Report.
