High Performance Computing Centre of University of Tartu will receive more capacity in the amount of 1.4 million euros
On Tuesday, 4 March, at 2 p.m. Rocket cluster of the High Performance Computing Centre of the University of Tartu was opened at Lossi 3-118. The cluster is equipped with 135 compute nodes, a separate server with large memory, RAM 2TB, 1596TB of saving space, 8 accelerator cards. Theoretical maximum capacity of the cluster is 59Tflops.
Scientists will benefit the most from the new equipment. They have now an opportunity to analyse large data faster and they can model processes more accurately than so far.
All researchers of the University of Tartu and Estonia will have access to the equipment, further user manuals and terms and conditions are available on the website of the High Performance Computing Centre.
The equipment will be connected with the common user identification system, which makes it possible for the researchers of one institution to use the resources of another institution pursuant to the rules agreed between the institutions. In addition to the University of Tartu, Tallinn University of Technology, National Institute of Chemical Physics and Biophysics and EENet participate in the project.
The cluster has been created within the project of Estonian Scientific Computing Infrastructure (ETAIS), which is funded by the European Regional Development Fund. The total amount of UT’s amount of ETAIS project, incl. the server room and surrounding infrastructure, is 1.4 million euros.
