New CPU and GPU nodes in Euler (January 2022)
Despite a very difficult market situation due to the global semiconductor shortage, we managed to get all the hardware that we ordered in 2021 just before Christmas:
- 248 CPU nodes, each equipped with 128 cores (2 x 64-core AMD EPYC 7763) and 256 GB of memory
- 20 GPU nodes, each equipped with 128 cores (2 x 64-core AMD EPYC 7742), 512 GB of memory and 8 GPUs (Nvidia Quadro RTX 6000)
The installation and testing of these nodes was completed in January 2022. All nodes are now operational, except for a few that had some hardware issues and are being repaired.
This major expansion increases the computing capacity of Euler by 536 CPUs (34,304 cores) and 160 GPUs (737,280 CUDA cores + 92,160 Tensor cores).
