The HPC hardware hosted by CC constitutes general compute and storage resources available to all staff and students at DTU as well as resources dedicated to specific purposes with limited access for prioritized groups of users only. Members of these groups are appointed by the “resource/cluster owner”. Some of the dedicated compute resources are made available to other users (by pooling resources), if not utilized by the prioritized users.
Current HPC compute resources (clusters) are:
- Central DTU HPC Cluster – General access
- Dyna Cluster – Limited access
- MEK Cluster – Limited access
- TopOpt Cluster – Limited access
- Fotonano Cluster – Limited access
- Compute Cluster – Limited access
For a description of the various queues please refer to “HPC Queues Parameters” page.
Besides from the HPC compute nodes, “application servers” are provided in the G databar. For more information regarding the Application servers, please consult the following link:
- Application Nodes – General access
And we also manage a number of Accelerators, which is available at the following link:
- Accelerators – Limited access
For the above mentioned nodes, we provide the following HPC Storage resources:
- Parallel Cluster File System (BeeGFS) also called “SCRATCH” – 62 TB – read more about the Scratch storage here
- Parallel Cluster File System (BeeGFS) also called “work1” – 98 TB – read more about the Scratch storage here
- ZFS home also called “Linux Home” – 44 TB – read more about the Linux Home storage here
The current DCC HPC architecture is illustrated in the figure below.
