Heffa NSC 6 58 x 1000 core-h/month Heffa was an experimental lab resource for running big data analytics using the Hadoop software stack.
Heffa is an experimental lab resource for running big data analytics using the Hadoop software stack. It is presently available for limited allocations primarily for evaluation and educational use. Allocation periods and amount of resources will be handled on case-by-case basis. We invite users to give feedback from their experiences.
Sigma NSC 2 076 2 488 x 1000 core-h/month
Sigma, sigma.nsc.liu.se, runs a CentOS 7 version of the NSC Cluster Software Environment. This means that most things are very familiar to Gamma users. You still use Slurm (e.g sbatch, interactive, ...) to submit your jobs. ThinLinc is available on the login node. Applications will still be selected using "module". All Sigma compute nodes have 32 CPU cores. There is 104 "thin" nodes with 96 GiB of primary memory (RAM) and 4 "fat" nodes with 384 GiB. Each compute node have a local SSD disk where applications can store temporary files (approximately 200GB per node). All Sigma nodes are interconnected with a 100 Gbps Intel Omni-Path network which is also used to connect the existing storage. The Omni-Path network work in a similar way to the FDR Infiniband network in Gamma (e.g still a fat-tree topology). Sigma have a capacity that exceeds the current computing capacity of Gamma. Sigma was made available to users on August 23, 2018.
