The cluster has 15744 cores with a peak performance of over 150 Tflops/s. For high parallel performance, the system is equipped with a high bandwidth, low latency QDR InfiniBand interconnect, with full bisectional bandwidth. All nodes have at least 2 GB/core and some nodes have over 8 GB/core. For more information about the system and available software see the HPC2N web-pages.
The cluster contains 672 nodes each in a dual quad-core configuration, for a total of 5376 cores. The CPU:s are the Intel L5420 low-power CPU:s running at 2.5 GHz, giving each node a total peak performance of 80 Gflops/s. Each node is equipped with 16 GB RAM for a total of more than 10 Terabytes of RAM. For high parallel performance, the system is equipped with a high bandwidth, low latency InfiniBand interconnect. Scratch storage is provided by a 100 TB disk-subsystem running GPFS. For more information about the system and available software see the HPC2N web-pages.
Akka will be closed down at the end of 2012. In this round we will only award 6 months allocations.
