Magerit Supercomputer

CeSViMa (Supercomputing and Visualization Centre of Madrid, in Spanish "Centro de Supercomputación y Visualización de Madrid") is located in the Excellent IT and Technology Transfer Montegancedo Campus, one of the sites of the Technical University of Madrid Science & Technology Park. CeSViMa, which is a member of the Spanish Supercomputing Network (RES), Spanish e-Science Network and Madrid Laboratories and Infrastructures Network, focuses on three main objectives:

  • High Performance Computing
  • Advanced Interactive Visualisation
  • Massive Storage

CeSViMa's supercomputer is called Magerit (the ancient recorded name of Madrid). The second version of this supercomputer is a cluster of 245 nodes PS702, that provides almost 4000 CPUs and 200 TB of storage inter-connected by a very high bandwidth switch. The nodes are interconnected with a high bandwidth and low latency infiniband network.
