Bianca and Rackham news


The SNIC board has approved about 10 MSEK in funding to procure more hardware for Bianca, including more GPU nodes, more storage, and more semi-fat compute nodes. With this increase in capacity and lifetime, we will be able to serve our growing community for several more years.

Additionally, an investment by the Kamerlin group has resulted in 144 nodes from the old NGI cluster, Irma, now added to Rackham. These resources, with 16 cores and 256 GB of RAM per node, amounting to about 1.5 million core-hours per month, are already available in the "core" partition (though the Kamerlin group naturally has priority over others). Look for nodes named "r1000" and higher!
