Search-ON2: Revitalization of HPC infrastructure of UMinho

Over the last 3 months was held the installation of new equipment under the project “Search-ON2: Revitalization of HPC infrastructure of UMinho” (NORTE-07-0162-FEDER-000086), co-funded by the North Portugal Regional Operational Programme (ON.2 – O Novo Norte), under the National Strategic Reference Framework (NSRF), through the European Regional Development Fund (ERDF).” This operation took place in 3 phases: first phase corresponded to the installation of 20 compute nodes, each with two Xeon processors 2650V2 (8 cores, 2.6GHz), 64GB RAM and 120GB SSD. In the second phase were installed 6 nodes to explore emerging technologies, which includes four nodes with two Xeon processors E5-2695V2 (12 cores 2.40GHz), 64GB RAM, 120GB SSD and two accelerators Xeon Phi 7120X and two more nodes with two Xeon processors E5-2695V2, 64GB RAM, 120GB SSD and with 2 GPUs NVidia Tesla K40M. The third phase consisted of installing a storage system composed by a SAN with 48TB of raw capacity for user’s homes and four storage nodes, each with two Xeon processors 2650V2 (8 cores, 2.6GHz), 64GB RAM and with 12TB of storage space, dedicated to the treatment of large volumes of data (scratch and bigdata).
