Kebnekaise HPC2N 7 733 3 500 x 1000 core-h/month
Kebnekaise is a heterogeneous computing resource consisting of:


  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 870 450 x 1000 core-h/month
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 30 890 16 000 x 1000 core-h/month
Tetralith,, 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.
Dardel PDC 22 572 15 600 x 1000 core-h/month
Dardel is the replacement cluster for Beskow and is currently scheduled for activation 2021-07-01. Active projects on Beskow will be transferred to this resource after decommision of this cluster.
