NERSC is pleased to announce the availability of a new file system: /global/scratch2. This file system is intended to replace the current /global/scratch, and is mounted on all NERSC platforms that mount /global/scratch. A new environment variable GSCRATCH2 has been created that points to your personal scratch directory in /global/scratch2.

All user accounts have been enabled on the second phase of Edison, a Cray XC30 with 5,200 compute nodes and roughly twice the sustained system performance of Hopper. The user environment on Edison phase 2 is the same as that on Edison phase 1, Of particular note is that the default programming environment uses the Intel compilers and the PGI compilers are not available. While most of the applications that were compiled for Edison phase 1 will run without recompilation, we strongly recommend that you recompile for the phase 2 system to get the best performance. For more information read the Edison pages.

NERSC. New project requests may be submitted as well (for either the remainder of 2013 or for 2014).
