In the first quarter of 2021, SIE supplied a cluster made up of the contests carried out by the IMUS and the IAMAT (Andalusian Institute of Mathematics).
As a result, a large cluster has been achieved, which is physically installed in the CICA (Scientific Computer Center of Andalusia).
SIE Ladon is a system connected by Infiniband HDR, on a switch with 40 ports at 200 Gb/s, which can double to 80 ports at 100 Gb/s, to face new expansions and a DLINK gigabit switch for IPMI connectivity 3.3 (RedFish standard ).
The entire system is monitored from the free GSM tool (Gigabyte Server Management)
Cluster management is based on the LadonOS 7.21 suite, developed on Centos 7.9, which includes modules for resource management and workloads, centralized node and software deployment, user authentication and authorization, virtualization, security, and
The system provides researchers with a calculation capacity of 1,024 CPU cores (2,048 execution threads) on AMD Rome and more than 40,000 NVIDIA cores with Ampere technology, which allows for GPU calculation performance of 60 Tflops in almost double precision. , 120 Tflops in simple precision and almost 2,000 TOPS (tera-operations/s), which allows for classic HPC, Deep Learning, Machine Learning and Artificial Intelligence calculations.
