High-Performance Cluster Computers at the INS and SFB 1060

For practical investigations of the numerical methods developed at the INS and the SFB1060, the institute maintains the atacama cluster with 78 nodes and 1248 cores. This system have special high-performance networking hardware, allowing fast communication between the compute nodes separated from the service ethernet and without the TCP/IP protocol overhead. Atacama performes 20630 GFlop/s in the Linpack benchmark test. For further information, please follow the links below.
