Additionally to compute nodes of SuperMUC-NG, some cloud nodes have also been purchased. The Compute Cloud currently consists of:
Number of Nodes
40 (@ 2.4 GHz)
40 (@ 2.4 GHz)
2x Nvidia Tesla V100 16 GB
192 (@ 2.1 GHz)
Currently only basic OS images are provided and the disk space is limited.
We will add OS images for remote visualization and images with access to specific SuperMUC-NG file systems later.
In the LRZ Compute Cloud we give you maximal freedom to pursue your research. This complete freedom necessitates a high degree of responsibility on your side: you are responsible for the security of your VMs! Only open them to outside connections as much as is absolutely necessary - not more!
Users must follow the Acceptable Use Policy (https://idmportal.lrz.de/regelwerk/cloudAUP.pdf). With the next change of their password users are also requested to explicitly accept this policies.
Before you start, please read our documentation: https://doku.lrz.de/display/PUBLIC/LRZ+Compute+Cloud
If you are new to Cloud computing we highly recommend to have a look at our tutorial on how to create a virtual machine to get an idea of our cloud software: https://doku.lrz.de/display/PUBLIC/Create+a+VM
Please remember to shelve your VMs when not used.
If you are interested in using the LRZ Compute Cloud, please send a ticket to the LRZ Cloud Team
Please describe in the ticket what you want to do with the cloud nodes.
