Kultrun Infrastructure

Kultrun is a hybrid cluster. All the machines are SuperMicro and the cluster is structured as following:

  • 1 Headnode
  • 1 Shared memory machine
  • 13 INTEL Computing nodes
  • 1 AMD Computing node
  • 1 Backup/Storage server
  • 24 ports 10 GbE Switch


  • The cluster is managed through SLURM and monitored via Ganglia. Details of each machine are reported here below.
