Urblauna (Romanche), or Lagopède Alpin in French, is a bird known for its changing plumage which functions as a very effective camouflage. More information is available at https://www.vogelwarte.ch/fr/oiseaux/les-oiseaux-de-suisse/lagopede-alpin
It's also the name of our new sensitive data compute cluster which will replace Jura cluster.
The cluster is composed of 18 compute nodes of which two have GPUs. All have the same 24 core processor.
|Number of nodes||Memory||CPU||GPU|
|16||1024 GB||2 x AMD Epyc3 7443||-|
|2||1024 GB||2 x AMD Epyc3 7443||2 x NVIDIA A100|
The GPUs are partitioned to create 4 GPUs each with 20GB of memory per node
The storage is based on IBM Spectrum Scale / Lenovo DSS

On Urblauna there are two partitions - "urblauna" and "interactive"
