Major Rivanna Upgrade Approaching

A major operating system upgrade is scheduled for Rivanna on October 10, 2017. The core system will move from Centos 6.8 to Centos 7.3. Most compilers and community applications will be upgraded as well. In addition, Rivanna will gain several new nodes with hardware accelerators. We will offer 10 nodes with 4 NVIDIA K80 GPGPUs, 4 nodes with 4 NVIDIA P100 GPGPUs, and 8 nodes of Intel Knight’s Landing Many-Integrated Core processors with 64 cores/256 threads per node.
