The system was acquired by the computational groups at Democritos and partially founded through a commercial contract with eXact lab srl, the spin-off company of the center.
The system is composed by an HP blade system providing 8 blade server. Each blade is equipped with 4 AMD 6376 CPUS with 16 cores. The total number of computational cores is therefore 512. The platform is complemented by two I/O servers which provide a 15 TB Lustre parallel file system. There is also a computational node equipped with GPGPU to run GPU-enabled scientific codes. The platform is designed to be modular and easily expandable.
