The Rackham cluster was made available 2017-04-24. In April the following year it was extended to the current configuration:

  • Rackham comprises 9720 cores in the form of 486 nodes with two 10-core Intel Xeon V4 CPU's each. In addition to the 452 standard nodes with 128GB memory each, there are "fat" nodes, 4 with 1TB memory and 32 with 256GB memory. An additional partition of 144 nodes/2304 cores has been financed by the Kamerlin group, which is generally available when not in use by the Kamerlin group.
  • Rackham's storage system, Crex, has a DDN Lustre file system and provides 9.75PB.
  • The interconnect is Infiniband FDR which supports a theoretical bandwidth of 56Gb/s and a latency of 0.7 microseconds.

Rackham has been decided to be kept in production through 2024-12-31.
