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.
