Computational Research Grants on the Okeanos Supercomputer

Languages:   Polski  • English



Superkomputer Okeanos

Starting July 2016 ICM UW will grant researchers access to the Okeanos supercomputer - a Cray XC40 large-scale computing system. Okeanos comprises more than 1000 compute nodes, each node containing two 12-core Intel Xeon Haswell processors and 128 GB of RAM. All nodes of the system are connected with the ultra-scalable Cray Aries interconnect with Dragonfly topology.

The system built by Cray Inc. in response to ICM’s strict and demanding requirements has become a unique High Performance Computing (HPC) solution in Poland. The system is characterised by very high computational power, as well as outstanding graph analytics capability and extreme per-formance on data-intensive workloads. Okeanos is best suited for large-scale computations, which require several thousand cores and several tens of terabytes of memory in a single run. Supporting such large-scale computations is the primary purpose of the Okeanos supercomputer.


Okeanos together with the Big Data analytics and storage systems installed at ICM’s new data centre in Warsaw form the coherent and complementary IT infrastructure of the OCEAN Competence Centre.
