Kebnekaise is the new supercomputer at HPC2N. It is named after the massif of the same name, which has some of Sweden's highest mountain peaks. Just as the massif, the supercomputer Kebnekaise is a system with many faces. 

Due to the different node-types, the allocation policy on Kebnekaise is not as straight forward as on Abisko.

As we are currently in delivery acceptance test not all details about the system are available yet. More information will follow shortly. Including information about operating system, available software, scheduling etc.
