Leeds WRG facilities are currently undergoing a major upgrade. The current Everest node is based on the latest AMD Opteron technology, and incorporates Sun Microsystems servers (V40z and V20z with 2.2 GHz dual-core processors) integrated by Streamline Computing, in total delivering 444 processor cores. This cluster constitutes a platform for highly-parallel programs using MPI, modest shared memory parallel codes utilising OpenMP, and programs requiring large amounts of memory (up to 32 GB).

The new system will substantially increase the computational power available to our researchers. It will initially start offering a service with 640 processor cores, and its capacity will triple over the next year.
