- 10/01-17: start moving special node types (graphics nodes, large memory nodes, ...)
- 10/08 :start moving SandyBridge nodes to Vulcan
- 10/10: start moving Haswell (hsw128gb10c) nodes to Vulcan
- 10/15: start moving Haswell (hsw128gb12c) nodes to Vulcan
- Final shutdown of Laki (all queued jobs on Laki will be deleted): October 31st
- The operating system on Vulcan will be based on CentOS 7.
- The batch system will be PBSPro.
- accounting of the cluster nodes will be changed from core hours (Laki) to node hours (Vulcan).
The NEC Cluster is part of a heterogenious computing platform (Projekt name Baku). This Project has 2 independent PC-Clusters installed in 2 different buildings. The based parts are named Laki and Laki2.
