The SNIC Science Cloud (SSC)  invites all interested current and future users to a training workshop on an introductory level at Mid Sweden University, Campus Sundsvall, 10:00-16:00 on the 31st of August.

We will introduce cloud computing in general, including covering the best practices around security and you will learn the basics of how to work with the OpenStack based Infrastructure-as-a-Service (IaaS).

The majority of the time will be spent in lab sessions on basic usage of the IaaS cloud.

Kebnekaise Expansion: A Welcome Addition for all Users

We are currently installing and verifying the expansion of Kebnekaise that we announced at the HPC2N Open House last fall. The expansion is a welcome addition to a heavily loaded Kebnekaise and will improve queueing times, particularly for GPU jobs. The expansion consists of a combination of standard Intel Xeon Gold 6132 (Skylake) CPU nodes and nodes also equipped with NVIDIA V100 Volta GPUs. This makes HPC2N one of the first accademic HPC sites in Europe to have the V100 GPUs in production.

Maintenance affecting all HPC2N systems between 2018-06-04 and 2018-06-08

We have a major maintenance to upgrade the Lustre parallel file system (/pfs/nobackup).

One of the goals is to introduce new functionality, for instance project based storage.

We will also do a number of related changes and optimizations to the Lustre file system setup.


We are planning for a full week of complete downtime on all HPC2N systems, including login and thinlinc nodes, starting 2018-06-04 07:30 CEST.

Please make sure to copy any files you want to work with during the downtime to some other system well in advance of the maintenance.
