Kebnekaise HPC2N 5 200 x 1000 core-h/month Proposals will be evaluated once per week
Kebnekaise is a heterogeneous computing resource consisting of:

Notes:

  1. Access to the Large Memory nodes are handled through the 'Kebnekaise Large Memory' resource.
  2. Requests for GPU and KNL nodes should be explicitly specified in the user's proposal.
  3. GPU nodes and the KNL nodes are charged differently than ordinary computing nodes.
Kebnekaise Large Memory HPC2N 5 40 x 1000 core-h/month Proposals will be evaluated once per week
To get access to the Kebnekaise Large Memory resource the proposal must clearly show a need for it, including expected memory size required, and a reason for why the normal nodes are not suitable.

This resource is for access to the 'Large Memory nodes' in Kebnekaise. For standard, GPU and KNL nodes see resource 'Kebnekaise'.

Kebnekaise is a heterogeneous computing resource consisting of:
Tetralith NSC 5 200 x 1000 core-h/month Access to Tetralith at NSC.
Proposals will be evaluated within a few working days. Projects will receive a default 500 GiB storage allocation on Centre Storage at NSC. For additional storage, please apply for a Storage project.

Tetralith, tetralith.nsc.liu.se, runs a CentOS 7 version of the NSC Cluster Software Environment. Use the workload manager Slurm (e.g sbatch, interactive, ...) to submit your jobs. ThinLinc is available on the login nodes. Applications are selected using "module". All Tetralith compute nodes have 32 CPU cores. There is 1832 "thin" nodes with 96 GiB of primary memory (RAM) and 60 "fat" nodes with 384 GiB. Each compute node have a local SSD disk where applications can store temporary files (approximately 200 GiB per thin node, 900 GiB per fat node). All Tetralith nodes are interconnected with a 100 Gbps Intel Omni-Path network which is also used to connect to the existing storage. There are 170 nodes in Tetralith equipped with one NVIDIA Tesla T4 GPU each as well as an updated, high-performance NVMe SSD scratch disk of 2TB. The nodes are regular Tetralith thin nodes which have been retrofitted with the GPUs and disks, and are accessible to all of Tetralith's users.
Rackham UPPMAX 5 1 000 x 1000 core-h/month UPPMAX compute resource
UPPMAX compute resource. Mounts the Crex file system. Projects will receive a default 128 GB storage allocation. For additional storage, please apply for a Storage project.

Rackham provides 9720 cores in the form of 486 nodes with two 10-core Intel Xeon V4 CPUs each. 4 fat nodes have 1 TB of memory, 32 fat nodes have 256 GB, and the rest have 128 GB. The interconnect is Infiniband.
