Cheyenne is the new 5.34-petaflops, high-performance supercomputer deployed by NCAR and released for production work on January 12, 2017.   Cheyenne is an SGI ICE XA Cluster, the Cheyenne supercomputer features 145,152 Intel Xeon processor cores in 4,032 dual-socket nodes (36 cores/node) and 313 TB of total memory and EDR Infiniband interconnect. Cheyenne is connected to new data storage components provided by DataDirect Networks (DDN) which increased the shared file system’s total usable capacity from 16 PB to 54PB. 

In this site update, we will discuss the current state of Cheyenne and share our experience during the install and deployment of the multi-petaflop system. 

In 2017 University of Colorado Boulder deployed RMACC Summit, an heterogeneous compute cluster providing Intel Xeon “Haswell”, intel Xeon Phi “knights landing”, Nvidia Tesla K80, and large (shared) memory resources using an Intel Omni-Path Architecture interconnect and a DDN GRIDScaler SFA14k (IBM Spectrum Scale / GPFS) scratch file system. In this site update we will discuss the current state of Summit, its accessibility within RMACC, and what we plan to do next.
