Nova

Nova cluster consists primarily of regular compute nodes, each with two 18-core Intel Skylake 6140 Xeon processors or two 24-core Intel Skylake 8260 Xeon processors, 1.5TB of fast NVME local storage and either 192GB or 384GB of memory. Besides these compute nodes there are three 3TB memory node with four Intel Xeon processors (one of these nodes has 11TB of fast SSD local storage) and five GPU nodes, that have same amount of memory and local storage as the regular compute nodes, but also have one or two Nvidia Tesla V100-32GB GPU cards.

The three service nodes include login node, data transfer node and the management node.

Large shared storage consists of four file servers and eight JBODS configured to provide 338TB of backed up storage per server.

All nodes and storage are connected via Mellanox EDR (100Gbps) switch.
