In late August 2014 we entered the next step of our HPC systems installation phase: the new Cray XC40 super computer is installed. It delivers a peak performance of 4 Petaflops, outperforming the maximum performance of the previous system, Hermit, by a factor of about 4!

This new HPC system provides 500 TB of Main Memory and about 6 PB of disc space. It is equipped with about 100,000 computing cores and features Intel’s next generation of micro processors, which are designed to optimize power savings and promise significant performance enhancements.

The first day is targeted to HERMIT users who will continue their work on HORNET. Specialists from Cray will talk about the hardware and software enhancements between the XE6 and XC40 in order to support your migration towards this new machine.

The second day is dedicated to user parallel IO at scale.

The third and fourth day covers a 2 day introduction workshop about porting and optimizing your application for the Cray XC40. The topics of this workshop include the Cray Programming Environment, scientific libraries and profiling tools.
