Large equipment

Short Description

Big SMP (Symmetric MultiProcessor) System with 2016 CPU cores and 15¾ TB of RAM. Use this if you need (tightly coupled) massive parallel processing or huge amounts of RAM for your jobs (→ Capability Computing).

In case of myriads of small computational tasks (→ Throughput Computing, as typically found in Parameter Studies) your jobs will be routed to one of the attached conventional Cluster- and Grid-Computing Facilities of the JKU Linz.

Methods & Expertise for Research Infrastructure

General Purpose HPC System: A large-scale Symmetric Multiprocessor System. Especially useful if your task at hand depends on tightly coupled massive parallel computing or on huge amounts of RAM. The single system image is managed by the high performance operating system Linux/x86_64 (SuSE Linux Enterprise Server).

Co-operation Project "Large-scale Symmetric Multiprocessing Compute Server" with the University of Innsbruck (within the ACSC - Austrian Centre for Scientific Computing); since September, 2011.
In the course of the Year 2018 MACH will be replaced in its role as a nationwide Scientific Compute Server and hand over to "Supercomputer MACH-2" (an SGI UV3000). In order to serve the ever growing demand for capability computing facilities the good old UV1000 still is doing production in the central compute server pool of the Johannes Kepler University of Linz.
