The LUMI supercomputer will be available in full swing in early 2022, and the CPU partition is scheduled to be available already this autumn.

To provide comprehensive support services for future users of LUMI, the LUMI User Support Team (LUST) has launched new LUMI user support pages. Here, you can find links to e.g. the LUMI documentation, FAQs as well as contact information for the LUMI User Support Team, which consists of HPC experts from the LUMI consortium countries.

Access to one of the fastest supercomputers in the world is not only a great opportunity for Danish researchers, it also bodes well for the part that Danish research will play in future breakthroughs in science. Among the exciting possibilities of LUMI are (source CSC): 

  1. It will be one of the world’s leading platforms for artificial intelligence. Researchers will be able to combine AI, especially deep learning, and traditional large scale simulations with massive scale data analytics. 
  2. LUMI’s data analytics partition has 32 an aggregated terabytes of memory and 64 visualization GPUs. This partition is used e.g. for visualization, heavy data analysis, meshing and pre/post-processing.
  3. The global bandwidth of the LUMI-GPU partition is 160 TB/s. This means that the global Internet traffic would fit therein – not just once, but twice!
