Centre for Scientific Computing in Aarhus (CSCAA) is a Center under the Faculty of Natural Sciences, Aarhus University.
CSCAA purchases, maintains, operates and supports high performance computers for a range of University groups ranging from Physics and Chemistry to Medicine and Economics.
CSCAA defines, implements and enforces the policies for use of the computer resources in collaboration with the users. CSCAA's organisation consists of a User Forum, a Steering Committee, a Centre leader and the staff.
During May 2022, CSCAA will start the procurement of new nodes in order to expand the Linux-cluster Grendel. By pooling the investments together in one big deal, we might get better prices, a more homogeneous system, and an overall easier procurement process.
Therefore, if you intend to contribute to Grendel with nodes, GPU-nodes or user storage please contact Niels Carl Hansen, CSCAA, or Ian Heide Godtliebsen, CSCAA, as soon as possible, and not later than Friday, 8th April 2022, to inform which type of equipment you want, and the amount of your planned investment.
By starting the procurement process in May this year, we expect there will be enough time to get the equipment delivered this year, which means that your investment can be attributed to 2022.
You are welcome to pass on this information to anybody at AU for whom it might be relevant.
