HPC

In July 2016 we installed a high performance computing system (HPC). This cluster is specifically designed for pre-processing of next generation sequencing (NGS) data. However, any application that requires massive parallel processing could be implemented as well.

Hardware

The HPC consists of

  • 33 servers (nodes) that can perform calculations,
  • file storage system with an effective size  of 110 TB (BeeGFS file system)
  • fast interconnect (Infiniband FDR) that allows for fast file transfer and MPI applications

The following scheme illustrates the structure of the cluster.
