Summary for proposals and applications
Computing and modelling are strategic areas of Aalto University. To support research in these scopes we committed to provide proper hardware resources and supporting personnel on long term basis. Currently we provide a system with about 7000 computing cores with over 80 Tflops of performance. System also contains 20 servers with dual NVIDIA cards for GPU computing and over 2 PB of fast storage capacity suitable for BigData needs. All parts are connected with fast Infiniband network to support parallel computing. To keep the resources competitive we nearly annually upgrade the system based on the needs of the computational research.
All resources are integrated with the national resources allowing easy migration to even larger resources when necessary. These include e.g. University dedicated OpenStack based cloud resources and access to thousands of servers via national computing grid. Furthermore we provide a lot of preconfigured software and hands on support to make the usage for researchers as effective as possible. On personnel side we have three Ph.D. level people to keep the system running and providing teaching and consultation for the researchers.
