Research Computing currently maintains the following resources for calculations requiring large amounts of physical memory.

Large Memory Servers
Host Architecture Vendor Processor Frequency Cores Memory(GB)
i1a-s3 amd64 AMD 6174 2.2 48 512
i1a-s11 amd64 Intel E5-4607 2.2 24 750
s5a-s23 amd64 Intel E7-8850 2.0 80 1024 (1TB)

The big memory machines are available only via the HiPerGator "bigmem" partition. To submit jobs to this partition you will need to add the following directive to your job submission script.

 #SBATCH --partition=bigmem

Please also be aware that servers with hundreds of gigabytes of RAM are still fairly expensive. If you submit a job to the bigmem partition and your group does not have an NCU allocation sufficient to accommodate the resource request, your job will be rejected.
