The UNM Computer Science Department has over 100 general-purpose workstations, running Linux, Windows XP, and Mac OS X. The department network infrastructure consists of a switched 1GB backbone, which links the campus network and supports the principal departmental servers.
Workstations connect via Ethernet ports, based upon hardware class and usage, including 336 Switched 10/100 ports and 48 10/100/1000 provided by a stack of Cisco 3750 switches. The CS Department has three class C subnets configured as two broadcast segments. Hardware of special note includes: a 4TB Network Appliance file server, a 2TB RAID5 Linux file server, a 560GB RAID5 Linux file server, an FTP server, a web server, a mail server and a 10 tape SDLT320 autoloading tape library system for department data backup.
Approximately 30 department machines are configured as a computing grid using the Sun Grid Engine. There are also several SMP Opteron systems for additional processing support. There is a departmental lab available to students, with 20 workstations, primarily Linux, as well as several labs dedicated to specific research projects. The Computer Science Department also maintains a wireless network (802ll.b) in the Farris Engineering Center for faculty and students. Additional labs are being planned. Systems support is provided by two full time staff and four part-time students.
In addition, equipment for parallel processing is available through the High Performance Computing Educational Resource Center (HPCERC). They have several SMP/MPP cluster systems including the Roadrunner and Blackbear clusters.
