The ALICE cluster is a hybrid cluster consisting of

  • CPU nodes
  • GPU nodes
  • High Memory node

Please find below a description of the individual components.

Due to a project based approach and the fact that the University does not have any experience in housing, serving and managing a HPC cluster a pre-configuration setup has been configured to gain this experience. Once the system and governance has proven to be a functional research asset it will be extended and continued for the coming years.

The descriptions below are for the pre-configuration setup which is housed partly in the Leiden University Data center (LMUY) and the Leiden University Medical data center (LUMC).

CPU nodes

The cpu based compute nodes have the following configuration:

GPU nodes

High Memory Nodes
