Anselm and Salomon Supercomputers Withdrawal From Service

Due to installation of the new EURO_IT4I supercomputer, the Anselm supercomputer is scheduled to be withdrawn from service on 25.1.2021. Job scheduling on Salomon supercomputer will be disabled from 1.3.2021 onwards. The Barbora and DGX-2 supercomputers continue regular operation.

After nearly 7 years of service in the case of the Anselm supercomputer and 5 years of service in the case of the Salomon supercomputer, it is time for withdrawal from service. The computers grew deprecated and energy inefficient, space and energy constraints mandate withdrawal to make room for the modern EURO_IT4I supercomputer. The EURO_IT4I is scheduled to fully replace the Anselm and Salomon supercomputers in May 2021.
