Welcome to the Anselm supercomputer cluster. The Anselm cluster consists of 209 compute nodes, totaling 3344 compute cores with 15 TB RAM, giving over 94 TFLOP/s theoretical peak performance. Each node is a powerful x86-64 computer, equipped with 16 cores, at least 64 GB of RAM, and a 500 GB hard disk drive. Nodes are interconnected through a fully non-blocking fat-tree InfiniBand network and are equipped with Intel Sandy Bridge processors. A few nodes are also equipped with NVIDIA Kepler GPU or Intel Xeon Phi MIC accelerators. Read more in Hardware Overview.

Anselm runs with an operating system compatible with the Red Hat Linux family. We have installed a wide range of software packages targeted at different scientific domains. These packages are accessible via the modules environment.

The user data shared file-system (HOME, 320 TB) and job data shared file-system (SCRATCH, 146 TB) are available to users.

The PBS Professional workload manager provides computing resources allocations and job execution.
