We’re happy to announce that we have been working with Loughborough University on its new supercomputer
Named after the English mathematician Ada Lovelace, the new HPC cluster provides 58 Lenovo SD530 compute nodes with 40 compute cores each, 2,320 total, three dedicated GPGPU nodes each with dual NVIDIA Tesla V100 GPU’s and two high memory visualisation nodes.
All systems are connected via Mellanox HDR100 InfiniBand fast networking and backed by 800TB of Lenovo DSS-G Storage which uses the IBM Spectrum Scale FileSystem.
Software in this deployment includes Bright Cluster Manager - Advanced Edition, together with Ansible for Cluster Management, Moab HPC Suite for Workload Management and the Intel Parallel Studio XE Cluster Edition suite of development tools.
It’s great to see OCF’s HPC expertise contributing to the University achieving greater research impact and generating new knowledge and insight. Lovelace will help the University to continue attracting world-class researchers, as well as grants for the continuance of their research excellence.
