The laboratory offers the possibility to run HPC applications on the ATeN infrastructure. Additionally, it is possible to run CPU intensive programs as well as software codes that can benefit from running on GPUs.
AteN HPC system consists of an architecture distributed by over 32 independent nodes, each with 2 Intel Xeon E5-2650v2 2.60 GHz CPUs for a total of 512 cores and 4 additional nodes with 2 Intel Xeon E5-2650v2 2.60 GHz CPUs for a total of 64 cores and 2 GPUs per node for a total of 19968 GPU cores.
The presence of 2 additional master management nodes, on which it is not possible to perform processing, guarantees access to the calculation nodes through the Dell grid-engine system.
All nodes are interconnected via a high-speed InfiniBand communication protocol, with a 1Gbps outgoing network interface.
The technical details of the two units are shown in the following table.
