Carbonate is Indiana University's large-memory computer cluster. Designed to support data-intensive computing, Carbonate is particularly well-suited for running genome assembly software, large-scale phylogenetic software, and other genome analysis applications that require large amounts of computer memory. Carbonate provides specialized deep learning (DL) and GPU partitions for researchers with deep learning applications and other applications that require GPUs. Additionally, Carbonate offers a colocation service to IU researchers, research labs, departments, and schools.
