Implementing CSC's next generation computing and data management environment

CSC chose Atos as the single vendor to deliver the next CSC computing environment that consists of the next-generation supercomputer and data management systems. 

The new environment will be deployed in two phases.

In the first phase, a new air-cooled supercomputer and data management systems will be installed by the summer of 2019. It includes

  • A supercomputer partition with total peak performance of 2.0 Petaflops.
  • A partition for Artificial Intelligence research with total peak performance of  2.5 Petaflops from GPUs.
  • A new common data management solution for both new and old infrastructure. This system is based on CEPH object storage technology and it provides 12 PB of storage capacity.

In the second phase, a new  liquid-cooled Atos BullSequana XH2000 supercomputer with 6.4 Petaflops of total peak performance will be installed and taken into use in early 2020.

Topical issues

  • Taito service break 30th of January - 1st of February, during which the Taito Sandy Bridge partition will be decommissioned. After the break Sisu can be used also for smaller parallel workloads, further details can be found here.
