High Performance Computing in Luxembourg

The UL HPC facility consists of 4 clusters with Intel multicore processors running the Debian operating system.

  • chaos and gaia constitute the core UL HPC facility restricted (unless specific exceptions) for UL staff members and students
  • g5k cluster is part of the Grid’5000 instrument
  • nyx is our internal experimental cluster we use to test new hardware and qualify our deployment procedure. It is NOT open to users.
Most of the documentation proposed on this website is only relevant for the core UL HPC facility i.e. the chaos and gaia clusters.
For the documentation specific to Grid’5000, see this page.
A handy, 1-page printable, UL HPC quick reference guide is available here.

The HOME file system is global for each site meaning you might have to synchronize your data between each site manually, even if utility script are provided to facilitate this synchronization. See the File Transfer page.
