Azzurra aims to provide research laboratories and students throughout the University with a high quality and flexible computing platform offering high level intensive computing possibilities (CPU and GPU) and high performance storage space.
Azzurra has recently increased its computing power with 16 new nodes equipped with 2 AMD Epyc 7302 @ 3 GHz – 16 cores processors, i.e. 32 cores per node and 256 GB of memory.
New Slurm queues are available for everyone to use the new AMD nodes: amd and amdcourt. Click here to read their configuration.
“Simulations of concentrated non-Brownian suspensions” is a research project from the Institut de Physique de Nice (InPhyNi – CNRS, UCA) with access to Azzurra. Click here to find out more about the project and the interest of using the HPC centre’s resources.
The maximum number of CPU cores that can be used simultaneously by a project account has been increased to 280 cores for the cpucourt queue, instead of 200 previously.
