All Users Now Enabled on Edison Phase 2

August 30, 2013 by Francesca Verdier

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.
