​​South African Tuberculosis Bioinformatics Initiative


The South African Tuberculosis Bioinformatics Initiative (SATBBI) hosts and maintains a number of computational resources for use by members of the group as well as the division.

The oldest of these is Khaos, a dual 4 core Intel Xeon E5520 machine running Centos Linux, with 96 GB RAM and 88 TB of RAID 6 disk space.

A somewhat newer machine is Aither: a Centos Linux server with 256 GB of RAM and 50 TB of RAID 60 disk space. This server has two Intel Xeon E5-2690 v3 12 core CPUs.

The Tabb Laboratory features a Linux server with 96 GB of RAM and 9 TB of disk space. This server supports a cluster of seven quad-core i7 Linux nodes for distributed processing.
