Welcome to Geryon2

Geryon2 is a computer cluster dedicated to astrophysical calculations for the Chilean astronomical community, located at the Instituto de Astrofísica and management shared with the Centro de Astro-Ingeniería, in the Pontificia Universidad Católica de Chile. The cluster is part of CATA facilities.

The supercomputer consists of 20 nodes, 13 nodes with 40 cores and 320Gb memory, 2 nodes with 32 cores and 512Gb memory, and 5 nodes with 56 cores and 512Gb memory. Total sum of 864 cores and 7.7 Tb of memory.

Nodes are connected with 40G InfiniBand network, running on Centos 7.5 64-bit Linux system. Storage capacity involves 57 Tb fast SAS disk drives and 380 Tb standard disks.

Development and execution tools include Intel compilers (ifort, icc), and GNU compilers (gcc, g++, gfortran, etc). Parallel support for OpenMPI, mpich2, OpenMP, and scientific parallel optimized libraries(fftw,gsl,hdf5,atlas). Python support with typical scientific libraries. Job scheduling is controlled by Maui Cluster Scheduler and Distributed Resource Management (DRM) software (TORQUE).
