Last week, the new HPC cluster for the LAMOS group was installed in the University's GreenIT Housing Center. About 15 months after sending the initial proposal, we will now be able to put our very own HPC cluster into operation.

The HPC cluster is called Aether, and consists of 56 compute nodes with two Intel Xeon E5-2690v4 CPUs each, for a total of 1568 compute cores running at 2.6 GHz. The cluster has a total memory of ~9 TB (40 nodes of 128 GB and 16 nodes of 256 GB each) and is supported by 480 TB parallel BeeGFS storage. It has a total (theoretical) peak performance of 65.2 Tflop/s.

We will give access to Aether to all interested working groups, especially at MARUM and IUP. More info about the cluster and how to get access to its resources are available at
