Notur - The Norwegian metacenter for computational

Notur serves the Norwegian computational science community by providing the infrastructure researchers at research institutes and industry.

The department has been provided access to Notur's High Performance Computing facilities; Stallo.


Stallo is a compute cluster with HP BL 460c Gen 8 blade servers. It has the following configuration:

  • The compute nodes have two 2.6 GHz CPUs from INTEL (Sandy Bridge), each compute node has 16 CPU-cores and 32 GB memory.
  • 32 of the new compute nodes has 128 GB memory each and is available in the highmem queue.
  • All new nodes is connected to the infiniband network. The network topology is island based with 128 compute nodes (2048 CPU-cores) tightly connected. All jobs runs within a single island, no jobs will be allowed to run across several islands. This limits the maximum job size to 2048 CPU-cores.
