NERSC's newest supercomputer, named Cori, is a Cray XC40. Named for American biochemist Gerty Cori, the first American woman to win a Nobel Prize and the first woman to be so honored with the prize in Physiology or Medicine, Cori ranked as the 5th most powerful supercomputer in the world on the November 2016 list of Top 500 supercomputers in the world. Cori is a unique among supercomputers of its size with two different kinds of nodes, 2,388 Intel Xeon "Haswell" processor nodes 9,688 Intel Xeon Phi "Knight's Landing" nodes. Cori also features a 1.8 PB Cray Data Warp Burst Buffer with I/O operating at a world's-best 1.7 TB/sec.
Before Cori can be released to users, it must be delivered, integrated with Phase I, and accepted. This page is the resource for the Cori upgrade and installation schedule. For the current status of Cori, please see the Cori Updates and Status page. Impact on NERSC Users While NERSC made every effort to minimize inconvenience to users, there were some unavoidable downtimes of Cori Phase I for the upgrade of its operating system and integration with Cori Phase II. Cori Phase II Preparation and… Read More »
