Introduction to the Cray XC40 HPC System at HLRS

Overview

Note: an additional course "Cray XC40-Workshop on Scaling and Node-level Performance" takes place on the following three days.

In August 2015, the Cray XC40 supercomputer Hornet at HLRS was upgraded to a new system named “Hazel Hen" featuring 7724 compute nodes, each equipped with two 12 core Intel Haswell processors running at 2.5 GHz. Each node is equipped with 128 GB DDR4 memory and connected to the other nodes through the Cray Aries network. The peak performance amounts to 7.4 PFlops.

HLRS and Cray offer this workshop in order to help users running their codes on this new large system.

The course gives an overview on the XC40 system. Specialists from Cray will talk about the hardware, best practices, and the new software enhancements.

Target audience: New users of Hazel Hen which are already familiar with computer simulations on clusters. Nevertheless, if you are interested in updates or CRAY XC40 systems in general, you are also welcome to attend this workshop.

Prerequisites: basic Linux knowledge (Shell, Editors, etc.)
