CRAY XE6 (Hermit)
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).
The next generation of Cray supercomputer Cray XC40 system has been installed and is in production.
The Cray XE6 (Hermit) will stay available until December 2014, that means we expect users to migrate to the new system as soon as possible. The currently used disk subsystems will stay available on the new system, which means that no data transfer is necessary. With the new system, users need to recompile their applications using the Cray XC40 environment. All academic projects will be available onto the new system.
