CPU Quota

01/02, 2008

The new machine "hexagon.bccs.uib.no", a Cray XT4 MPP, is now available for users. The machine was installed in the beginning of January this year and has had a few test users until now. The machine will be upgraded from its current configuration with dual-cores to the final, quad-core, configuration later this spring. After the upgrade the formal acceptance test will be executed.

More information about the machine can be found on the documentation pages.

The machine is available for "local" users from the University of Bergen, IMR and NERSC. These users can apply for an account by using the form found here

In addition, users that have acquired quota from the NOTUR consortium will have access to the NOTUR part of the machine.

Any questions regarding support, the documentation or other matters related to this can be sent to hpc-support@hpc.uib.no or the alias support-uib@notur.no
