Collaboration leads to success: Most powerful computer of its kind in western N.Y. available worldwide
Date:4/6/2009

Project History

The Miller Cyberinfrastructure Laboratory (MCIL) was founded at the beginning of the 21st century by Miller who is widely recognized as a leader in parallel computing, grid computing, and cyberinfrastructure. Miller served as Founding Director of the UB Center for Computational Research (CCR) from 1998-2006. Under Miller's direction, and with primary funding from the National Science Foundation (NSF) and National Institutes of Health (NIH), a Buffalo-based grid was developed as an experimental way to create an institutionally-distributed platform that integrated information and computing. This led to the design, implementation, and deployment of the Western New York Grid (WNY Grid), which aggregated costly computational resources at institutions throughout WNY. The overwhelming success of the WNY Grid led to the MCIL-deployed New York State Grid (NYS Grid), based on the Open Science Grid set of grid software.

Magic is a state-of-the-art computer system located at UB's North Campus which consists of graphics processing units typically reserved for high-end gaming systems that are integrated into a traditional rack of computers. Magic was delivered in late 2008 and is now available to users worldwide. The system is cost-effective in solving large computational problems in areas including bioinformatics, computational chemistry, computational fluid dynamics, computational finance, medical imaging, weather and ocean modeling.

Why Is This Important?

Led by Miller, MCIL worked on platforms for monitoring grid systems, for providing a single point-of-entry portal and for solving intricate problems involving node swapping, predictive scheduling and resource management. MCIL has been responsible for grid-enabling critical applications in areas such as structural biology, bioinformatics, ground water modeling, earthquake engineering and computational chemistry.
