Description

Platform funders : FEDER,
the Hauts de France and Amiens Métropole regional council.
Amiens Métropole

The platform brings together 4432 cores, 25 GPUs and 34.2 TB of memory. Computing power is rated at around 400 TFlops (evaluation in progress). It is notably made up of 72 fine nodes, 16 thick nodes, 6 bi-gpus nodes and 3 quad-gpus nodes and 4 tri-fpga nodes. A visualization node is also available with Nice DCV 2021.

Recent developments

Amiens Métropole

Strong support from Amiens Métropole has enabled the platform to be updated, for which support for “critical” equipment has just been extended. The addition of 24 thin nodes, 4 thick nodes, 1 Quad GPU node and 4 tri-FPGA nodes (about 180 TFlops) will mainly be intended for project depositories (energy and medical).
