Extension of Abacus 2.0 and Downtime in May

Abacus 2.0 Phase 2

During May 2016 Abacus 2.0 is extended with further 192 slim nodes. After the extension we have in total 584 compute nodes of which 448 nodes are slim nodes, and the remaining nodes are the original 72 gpu nodes and 64 fat nodes.

As part of the upgrade, the entire supercomputer is moved to a new data centre (also located at SDU, Campus Odense). This unfortunately means that the system will be unavailable for users during parts of May — see below for details.

National supercomputing dag – fokus på e-infrastrukturer

Dato: Mandag, 30. maj 2016 –9:00 til 16:00

Sted: Lokale U45, SDU, Campusvej 55, Odense

Arrangør: DeIC eScience Kompetencecenter, SDU, Statsbiblioteket og DTU

Danmark er ved at opbygge en stærk e-infrastruktur, der skal styrke det danske forskningsmiljø og samtidig øger erhvervslivets mulighed for at skabe innovation.

Finalen i SDU Supercomputer Challenge 2015

Professor, centerleder af SDU eScience Centre og overdommer i konkurrencen, Claudio Pica, var meget stolt af alle de deltagere, der nåede til finalen i konkurrencen:

This wasn’t easy […] We wanted to set the bar very high and we succeeded – but what is even more pleasant to see is that you succeeded to come to the end […] In my eyes you are all winners […] I see that you put a lot of effort into this and for this reason we are very proud of you.

ABACUS 2.0 og Akademiet for Talentfulde Unge

Torsdag, 31. marts 2016 – 17:00 til 20:00 har unge gymnasielever mulighed for at se og hør om ABACUS 2.0  – Danmarks største computer.

Med en ydeevne på 582,2 såkaldte teraflop/s er supercomputeren ABACUS i stand til at beregne over en halv billiard beregninger i sekundet. Det vil et menneske udstyret med en lommeregner til sammenligning skulle bruge godt 18 millioner år på. Med denne regnekraft overhaler den en meget hurtig spillecomputer indenom 2000 gange, og dermed er ABACUS 2.0 faktisk Danmarks største computer.
