General information

With a large history on intensive computing systems, the IT and Communications Centre (CSIRC) has been supporting scientific research since 1990.

On December 28, 2006, a step forward was achieved by the University of Granada (UGR) with the acquisition of the UGRGrid supercomputer (currently on active service). This system was listed in June 2007 as one of the fastest 500 computing systems in the world in the TOP500 list. This system reaches a sustained performance of 4.2 TFLOPS. Recently, on November 20, 2013, the Alhambra system entered in service, providing a substantial increase in computational power of about 40 TFLOPS.

UGRGrid is based on a distributed-memory arquitecture, composed by a SUN Fire X2200 M2/X4600 M2 cluster with 1264 computing cores, a total of 3 TByte RAM memory, 24 TByte of shared storage and a high-performance Infiniband interconnection.

Alhambra is a HPC system acquired in 2013, composed by Fujitsu PRIMERGY CX250/RX350/RX500 nodes and comprising 1808 cores (a total of 3616 threads), 4.28 TByte RAM memory, 72 TByte shared storage and QDR Infiniband interconnection.

In order to use the supercomputing systems or find answers to questions or problems that you may have, we advise you to follow the next steps:

  1. User Registration
  2. Storage: scratch and permanent directories
  3. Cluster Access
  4. Running applications
  5. Development tools
  6. Help and Support
