Large equipment

Short Description

Big SMP (Symmetric MultiProcessor) System with 1728 CPU cores and 20,480 GB 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). The system serves for any kind of Scientific Computing in Academia (Research & Education) by facilitating productive In-Memory Supercomputing.

Please refer to the Use Cases as outlined in the Project Call HRSM2016 "Supercomputer MACH-2" by JKU and the 4 co-operation partners, respectively.

Nota Bene: Over the course of the Year 2018 the In-Memory Supercomputer MACH-2 replaced the "oldie" MACH (see BMBWF ForschungsInfrastruktur-Entry 1613: ) in its role as a nationwide Scientific Compute Server and took completely over in 2019.
