Maintenance on the cooling system in the HLR building
The cold water cooling system has been cut and welded at the critical joints, so that we can continue cooling with other means.
Since the provider of the coming “Lichtenberg 2” successor system has finished the storage benchmarks during the weekend, we're currently in the process of bringing up the Lichtenberg 1 cluster again.
For an extensive repair of the defective main chilling unit and retrofitting of the cold water pipe system, the whole water cooling system is unavailable.
Due to this, no electrical (and thus, heating) device is allowed to be running, and so the whole HPC cluster and the Housing servers in L5|08 need to be switched off.
To avoid usage restrictions due to the “Corona situation”, a campus-wide license (CWL) is available for MATLAB, Simulink and all adjacent toolboxes as well as a variety of e-learning materials. The CWL is valid with immediate effect, and will last until 2020-09-30. go
Supporting AI research by extension of the Python programming language and containers
Research in Artificial Intelligence (AI), and more specifically Machine Learning (ML) is the key issue in computer-aided methods of the last years. To support scientists in their ML and Deep Learning related research on the Lichtenberg cluster, and to attract more users, the Python installation in the module system have been complemented. go
