The Department has at disposal its own computing cluster consisting of around 70 computing nodes (4000 cores in total) and more than 12 TB of RAM, several nodes with GPU and FPGA accelerators, storage capacities around 1.2 PB, interconnected with an Ethernet network with a 40 Gbps backbone and Infiniband HDR100. The cluster is currently running CentOS 7.7 managed by Rocks Cluster Distribution, with scientific software built and managed using EasyBuild, Lmod, and Singularity.
