CRAY XE6 (Hermit)
Hermit will be installed in 3 steps.
Installation step 1 is currently installed and is available to users since December 2011.
The installation step 1 is based on CRAY XE6 technology and consists our of 3552 compute nodes.
The overall system concept will have beside the compute nodes additionally special frontend nodes for pre- and postprocessing in different configurations and a huge and fast storage system.
ISV codes are supported to a large extent directly on top of the Cray Linux Environment (CLE) or by using the Cluster Compatibilty Mode (CCM).
Starting on August 13th 2014 HLRS will make the next step, installing a new Cray XC30 system.
