After a few e-mails back and forth, I gained access to the NCSU’s ARC Cluster. The hardware consists of 1728 cores on 108 compute nodes integrated by Advanced HPC. I’m particularly interested in finally having a real environment in which to experiment with NVIDIA CUDA.
Access to the cluster is firewalled; you can first SSH into a public-facing NCSU server, but I’ve found it easiest to use NCSU’s Cisco AnyConnect VPN Client. If you’re using Windows, you can use the PuTTY Key Generator to quickly create a SSH-2 DSA public/private key pair.
