Supercomputing cluster

The HERMES supercomputing cluster is the scientific infrastructure most used by I3A researchers. It responds to the increasing complexity of the simulations carried out in the most advanced research projects of the Institute.

HERMES has more than 1,500 parallel processing cores, 8TB of RAM and 150TB of shared storage, all connected by a 10Gbps backbone. HERMES is able to process a year's work on a personal computer in just 3 hours, greatly accelerating the work of researchers. The I3A technical staff maintains the system and provides technical support, advice and training in parallel supercomputing and high-performance base coding.

The cluster is unit 27 of NANBIOSIS, the integrated infrastructure for the production and characterization of nanomaterials, biomaterials and systems in biomedicine, of the CIBER-BBN and the Jesús Usón Minimally Invasive Surgery Center, which has been recognized by MINECO as a Singular Scientific-Technological Infrastructure (ICTS).
