Expansion of Grendel

During autumn 2019, Grendel-S has been expanded with 96 new nodes.

Half of these are 40-cores computenodes and the other half are GPU-nodes, each equipped with two Nvidia V100 GPUs. All the nodes are produced and delivered by Hewlett Packard Enterprise.

The expansion of Grendel-S was made possible due to contributions from research groups at Department of Chemistry, Department of Physics, Department of Geoscience, Department of Computer Science, Department of Bioscience and Department of Economics, Aarhus University.
