Named after the Norwegian arctic expedition ship Fram, the new Linux cluster hosted at University of Tromsø (UiT) is a shared resource for research computing capable of 1.1 PFLOP/s theoretical peak performance. It will enter production during the 2017.1 computing period (starting 1 April 2017).
Fram is a distributed memory system which consists of 1004 dual socket and 2 quad socket nodes, interconnected with a high-bandwidth low-latency Infiniband network. The interconnect network is organized in an island topology, with 9216 cores in each island. Each standard compute node has two 16-core Intel Broadwell chips (2.1 GHz) and 64 GiB memory. In addition, 8 larger memory nodes with 512 GiB RAM and 2 huge memory quad socket nodes with 6 TiB of memory is provided. The total number of compute cores is 32256.
