Department of Chemical Engineering invites quotations for a High Performance Compute
Cluster to be built with 2-Socket Severs (approximately 16 servers) with the following

Compute servers (Qty: approximately 15)

   1. Processors: TWO quad core processors (a total of 8 cores per server). Processor
      must be of latest generation with high performance integrated memory controller
      on the processor and with at least 8 MB L3 cache. The server should be able to run
      64 bit Unix, 32/64 bit Linux and 64 bit Windows Operating system.

      Provide separate options for latest generation AMD Opteron (with at least 2.6
      GHz clock speed) and INTEL Xeon (with at least 2.93 GHz clock speed)

   2. Memory: 12 GB (Registered DDR3-1333 MHz RAM for Intel Xeon and DDR2 for AMD
      Opetron ) upgradable to at least 32 GB. Mention the number of DIMM slots that will
      get used up for 12 GB and the number of slots that will remain free for future

   3. Storage: one 32 GB SSD hot pluggable disk ; should also be able to accommodate at
      least one additional hot pluggable SATA or SAS hard disks

   4. Interface ports: At least 2 x 10/100/1000 Mbps Ethernet ports, at least 4 USB and 1
      Serial port

   5. Infiniband 4XQDR card compatible with above mentioned server with IB cable of 1
      meter length

   6. Chassis: 1U/2U racking mounting with rack mounting kit

   7. Operating system: Systems to be supplied with 64 bit Red hat Linux.

   8. Other features: Should feature an embedded dedicated Service processor to enable
      lights out management, system must provide secure remote access using web
      interface over SSL and CLI, the product should be RoHS compliant.

   9. Warranty: 3 year comprehensive onsite warranty (inclusive of parts and labor costs)

Master server (Qty: One)

Master server should have the same specifications as mentioned above for the compute
server. In addition, the master server should have the following:

   1. Four 500 GB SATA with 10K RPM Hot Pluggable Disk, Should also be able to
      accommodate at least 8 additional hot pluggable SATA or SAS hard disks
   2. Hard Disk controller; PCI-E based RAID controller with 256 MB and support for RAID
      levels 0, 1, 5, 6
   3. DVD +/- RM, CD-RW combo drive (internal)
   4. Dual Redundant hot swappable high efficiency power supply
   5. 19” Flat panel monitor (1 No.), Key board with USB connectivity (1 No.) and optical
      mouse with USB connectivity and mouse pad (1 No)

Also quote separately for
        36 Port Infiniband 4X QDR Switch with 3 years warranty (Qty: One)
        42U Rack with accessories
Scope of Work:
The vendor will be responsible for setting up of the High Performance Computing
Cluster using a Infiniband or Gigabit switch based on 64 bit Unix/Linux with dynamic
resource management tool, dynamic resource balancing, policy based resource allocation,
cluster management tool, scheduler, management of concurrent computing of parallel
applications, compiler. Vendor must supply C, C++, F77 and F90 compilers required for
64bit Linux/Unix. Implementation of GNU and Intel compilers and MVAPICH2 and OpenMPI
with IB. Installation and configuration of batch queuing software like open PBS or similar.
Installation and configuration commercial flow solvers (available with the department) in
parallel mode using IB interconnects. Definition of scripts for changing the environment
variables for the MPI and Compiler stack. Web Based cluster Management utility.
