The Euler III extension to the Euler cluster is available for beta testers.

If you are interested in running test jobs on the new nodes and are willing to work with us to diagnose and resolve problems, then Contact contact us to be granted access as a beta tester for these nodes.

Serial jobs or single-node parallel jobs using from **1 to 4** cores, use **up to 30 GB** of total memory and request **up to 24 hours** are good candidates to run on these nodes.

The new nodes run CentOS 7 exclusively. All other production nodes in Euler currently run CentOS 6. Jobs that rely on Infiniband will not run on these nodes. Single-node Open MPI jobs will run but MVAPICH2 jobs will not run.

## Submitting beta jobs

To submit a job to run on the beta Euler III nodes, you must request the **beta** resource, e.g.,

bsub -R beta [other bsub options] ./my_command

*Only* jobs from approved beta testers will run until the Euler III nodes will be put into public beta.
