HPC2N - Resources - (retired) Hardware: Knut




Knut was an IBM SP system acquired in 1997. The acquisition was made possible through a generous donation from the Knut and Alice Wallenberg Foundation. It was our main computing facility for large scale computations and simulations.

The 68 nodes IBM Scalable POWERparallel system (SP) consists of 64 120MHz Power2SC nodes, 2 160MHz Power2SC nodes and 2 4-way SMP 112MHz PowerPC 604 nodes. These are connected with an IBM High Performance switch.

Knut was connected to Alice the SGI Onyx2, via a HiPPi channel.
