Hardware and Software Resources

Major group computer hardware resources:

 

The group has 3 major clusters: quanta, volta, and exciton. Additionally, the chemistry department has a small educational cluster chem01 and chem02.

 

quanta.lnx.biu.ac.il 29 compute nodes, 252 compute cores

volta.lnx.biu.ac.il 12 compute nodes, 192 compute cores​

exciton.lnx.biu.ac.il 29 compute nodes, 496 compute cores​

chem01.lnx.biu.ac.il 2 compute nodes, 32 cores​
