Timetable for implementing the new infrastructure
The new environment will be deployed in two phases.
Phase 1, Puhti and Allas
The first phase of the infrastructure will consist of Puhti, a new air-cooled cluster, a partition for artificial intelligence research and Allas, a new common data management solution for both new and old infrastructure.
The delivery is in mid-April 2019. Acceptance testing is planned from late April to mid-July.
The phase 1 of the new infrastructure will be available for end users after passing acceptance tests in August 2019.
Phase 2, Mahti
In early 2020, the second phase of the supercomputing environment (Mahti) will be taken in use, and the environment will reach its full capacity. As a part of the needed preparations for the new system, Sisu will be decommissioned on 16.8.2019.
During acceptance testing of phase 1 selected Pilot Projects will have a possibility for extensive utilization of the new infrastructure. The call for Pilot projects deadline for proposals was Monday, 25th February, 2019, at 12:00. Find chosen pilot projects here.
A similar pilot use period is planned for phase 2 in 2020.
