System architecture

The system consists of two clusters: FBFUSE with 32 and APSUSE with 68 nodes. All nodes are equipped with two nVidia GTX 1080 Ti GPUs. In addition to this APSUSE hosts the BeeGFS distributed file system.


The APS and FBF clusters were designed and are maintained by the MPIfR and part of the MeerKAT project. The site is located in the Karoo desert in South Africa.

This list entry is a work in progress and will be completed some time in the near future.
