With the recent update to BonFIRE, we are also excited to announce that two new sites are now available to you in our Open Access initiative: PSNC and WT.
The Poznan Supercomputing and Networking Centre (PSNC) is an active research and development centre involved in numerous national and European projects in the field of networking, media, clouds and services. It is also responsible for the development and management of the national research & educational network (PIONIER) in Poland.
PSNC provides a testbed of up to 3 nodes where each platform consists of dual Intel Xeon E5645 (6 cores) CPUs with 1,2TB storage and 4x 1GbE connectivity. The internal network supports up to 10GbE links with the 1 GbE uplinks to the Internet. This is currently the only site in BonFIRE using KVM.
Wellness Telecom provides 8 dedicated nodes as permanent resources with a total pool of 120 GHz (Intel® Xeon® Processor E5-2640 2.50 GHz 95W 6C/15MB Cache/DDR3 1333MHz). Each node has 8GB of RAM memory (DDR3-1600-MHz RDIMM/PC3-12800/dual rank/1.35v) with a total of 3TB of storage capacity in the Storage Area Network (SAN). This is currently the only site in BonFIRE using VMWare.
