Setup and Security framework

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.

Getting Started

The Getting Started page guides new users in the use of the system.

Upgrade is performed in on-line mode and should cause minimal to no performance impact during the process.

On 31 August 2021, the Computerome team will be performing general maintenance and upgrades on Computerome; a next generation firewall will be installed, and systems stability increased. Computerome will therefore be unavailable, but we expect services to be fully restored by 1 September 2021. Please keep the downtime in mind when you plan your work.

We apologize for any inconvenience caused by this scheduled down-time.

Dell/EMC is currently working to fix a flawed switch in our Isilon storage backend.

This has caused random errors, where some users have received "access denied" on files and directories.

As an unfortunate side effect, it has also caused some users' jobs to terminate prematurely.

Update: 2021.06.28, 10:30 CEST

Isilon file and directory access is back and stable, with no further drop-outs since Friday.

Computerome has returned to normal operations again, and we will be monitoring the situation closely.

We now have an AMD EPYC™ 7601 - Memory Bound HPC Performance server for testing. Please contact Computerome Support for access.

The Danish National Supercomputer for Life Sciences (a.k.a. Computerome) is installed at the DTU National Lifescience Center at Technical University of Denmark.

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 1.0 was opened in November 2014 at #121 on TOP500 Supercomputing Sites.

The current setup, Computerome 2.0, was opened in 2019. It's compute resources consists of 31760 CPU cores with 210 TeraBytes of memory, connected to 17 PetaBytes of High-performance storage,

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.
