BG01-IPP – HP Cluster Platform Express 7000 enclosures


The Grid resources from Bulgaria will be provided initially from the older HPCG cluster – BG01-IPP. Technical details of BG01-IPP cluster are given in the table below. Since this cluster is towards the end of its usable lifetime, the Grid services will be later migrated to the new system – Avitohol.

From point of view of users, there will be no change in the way the services are used and the dedicated cores will be kept.
