Ciment is proud to announce that the brand new communitary HPC platform (funded by the equip@meso project, the Rhône-Alpes region and the OSUG@2020 labex) is coming soon. It will be a Bull supercomputer with a next generation cooling system called DLC (Direct Liquid Cooling). It is composed of 2176 Xeon (Intel Sandy-Bridge) cores with up to 128GB RAM by node (8GB/core), a very efficient low latency computing network (non-blocking Infiniband FDR) and a 3GB/s shared scratch filesystem (Lustre). It will also provide a remote 3D visualization node and a quad-cpu node with 512Gb of RAM. Some nodes with accelerators (Xeon Phi and/or Nvidia GPU) will be added in a latter time (during 2013)
