MPG Supercomputer COBRA

Intel Skylake processor based system (~ 3200 nodes with 40 cores @ 2.4 GHz each) since April 2018.

Expected addition of 64 nodes each with 2 Nvidia V100 GPUs by end of 2018.

Total number of cores: ~ 120.000, total memory: ~0.5 PByte.

Interconnect: Intel OmniPath 100.

High energy efficiency through ground water cooling.

StorageTek Tape Library

Data archive with research results of Max-Planck scientists: With 30,000 tapes - based on a STK SL8500 tape library - the archive at MPCDF can hold a maximum data capacity of 90 PetaByte.  Robots on the shelf rows reach each volume keeping the information available around the clock. Data of all sections belong to the stock, e.g. simulations of life and materials sciences or astro and fusion research, but also treasures of the World Heritage like sound recordings of endangered languages or images of rare frescoes.
