Computerome 2.0 has been built with similar principles and technologies, as Computerome 1.0. Those users, who will migrate their Computerome 1.0 projects to the new cluster, will experience the following differences:
There is no difference between Computerome 1.0 and Computerome 2.0 regarding:
The Danish National Supercomputer for Life Sciences has an ultra high-density footprint, and is installed in two 500kW containerized Tier IV data center modules.
The system is designed using the bioinformatics reference architecture developed by CBS over the past 20 years and using the standard practices in the industry. It has a full set of comprehensive tools for both management and usage of the system. To get acquainted with the physical Hardware setup please visit here.
The Getting Started page guides new users in the use of the system.

The computer hardware is funded with grants from Technical University of Denmark (DTU), University of Copenhagen (KU) and Danish e-infrastructure Cooperation (DeiC) - also, it is the official Danish ELIXIR Node.
Computerome's original compute resources consisted of 16704 CPU cores with 102 TeraBytes of memory, connected to 8 PetaBytes of High-performance storage, and with a total peak performance of more than 483 TeraFLOPS (483 million million floating-point operations per second).
It debuted in November 2014 at #121 on TOP500 Supercomputing Sites .
Please see the Hardware page for further details.
Computerome is a building-block in the Tryggve project that is working to establish a Nordic platform for collaboration on sensitive data, and that is funded by NeIC and the ELIXIR nodes in Denmark, Finland, Norway and Sweden.
The Tryggve project welcomes use-cases from researchers collaborating on sensitive data with researchers in other Nordic countries. Please follow instructions on the Tryggve Getting Started page.
As part of the Computerome engagement in Tryggve, Computerome is committed to the Tryggve Code of Conduct.
The Computerome (pronunciation: \kəm-ˈpyü-tər-ōm\) cluster supercomputer is named in accordance with the use of the '-ome' suffix in the field of study in biology.
Computerome is housed at DTU Risø Campus.
