LUMI pilot projects selected

The projects for the first pilot phase of LUMI have been selected and the pilots will start to run on the CPU partition of LUMI in September 2021.

The first pilot phase aims to test the scalability of the CPU partition and generate workloads on the CPUs, particularly to stress test the storage systems for stability testing. Furthermore, the aim is to provide early access to LUMI to obtain feedback from the pilot users before the launch of LUMI’s regular operations.

The selected projects for the pilot phase were chosen from the LUMI consortium countries and are presenting various disciplines:

  • Belgium: Michel Rasquin (Cenaero), Thomas Toulorge (Cenaero) and Koen Hillewaert (University of Liège & Cenaero), Direct Numerical Simulations of a Smoothed Backward Facing Step Featuring Incipient Separation

Operations of LUMI starting in two phases

LUMI will be installed in two phases: in the first phase, during summer 2021, the CPU partition and storage systems will be deployed.

The second installation phase towards the end of the year will bring LUMI to its full grandeur including the GPU partition.

Both installation phases will be concluded with short pilot and acceptance phases. So LUMI will be in full swing in early 2022 but the CPU partition will be available already earlier during autumn 2021. Together with the CPU capacities, LUMI will feature an Early Access Platform for preparing applications for the GPU partition. LUMI welcomes further early adopter projects from all LUMI consortium countries after the first phase of pilots has been completed.
