  • x64 architecture computer with Intel Pentium or Xeon family with Intel Extended Memory 64 Technology (EM64T) architecture; AMD Opteron family; AMD Phenom family; AMD Athlon 64 family; compatible
  • Hard Disk:

  • 50 GB Minimum disk space for setup
  • Memory:

  • 512 MB RAM
  • Optical Drive:

  • Others:

  • A single system volume is required for the head and compute nodes
  • Redundant array of independent disks (RAID) is supported but not required
  • The system volume must be Master Boot Record (MBR). Additional volumes can be MBR or GUID Partition Table (GPT)
  • At least one network interface card (NIC) is required. If a private network is used, the head node requires at least two NICs, and compute nodes at least one. Each node may also require a high-speed NIC for an application network
