New CFMS Cluster
The Centre for Modelling & Simulation (CFMS) has recently refreshed it’s cluster and the new cluster is now available via EPIC. The CFMS cluster is built using the Cray CS-400 solution, with parallel file storage provided by ArcaStream, based upon IBM Spectrum Scale and the latest generation Intel E5-26XX v4 (Broadwell) Xeon CPUs. The cluster also has a pool of Nvidia K80 GPUs. The new cluster is ~5x more powerful than the previous CFMS cluster, while also being physically more compact and using the same amount of power. The new CFMS cluster is available in EPIC now and will appear in your cluster list for all applications.
