New Tier-2 cluster doduo

(06-04-2021) Additional compute power of +12.000 AMD cores now available

We are happy to announce the availability of a new HPC-UGent Tier-2 cluster, nicknamed "doduo".

The "doduo" cluster consists of 128 workernodes, each with:

  • 2x 48-core AMD EPYC 7552 processor (AMD Rome microarchitecture)
  • 250 GiB of usable RAM memory
  • 180 GB of local storage (SSD)

This totals to over 12,000 cores of additional compute power!

A high performance interconnect (HDR-100 InfiniBand) and a fast connection to the shared filesystems make this cluster well suited for large MPI jobs.

The doduo cluster is a bit different from the other HPC-UGent Tier-2 clusters, please take the information outlined here into account before you start using doduo!
