Technical specifications of the High Performance Computing (HPC) environment on Talos

Software

Key ingredients of the High Performance Computing (HPC) environment of the Talos cluster

Virtual Servers

  • Jumphosts: reception
  • User Interfaces (UIs): talos
  • Deploy Admin Interfaces (DAIs): tl-dai
  • Sys Admin Interfaces (SAIs): tl-sai
  • Compute Nodes: tl-vcompute01, tl-vcompute02, tl-vcompute03

Shared Storage

A Logical File System (LFS) is usually a piece of a larger Physical File System (PFS) that serves a specific need for a specific user group. In case it as a network file system you could call it a share. In addition to LFS-ses for home dirs and the centrally deployed software and reference data the Talos HPC cluster has access to the following LFS-ses:

  • Available prm LFS-ses: prm08
  • Available rsc LFS-ses: rsc08
  • Available tmp LFS-ses: tmp08
