Marvin is a High Performance Computing (HPC) cluster named after the famous robot character from the movie "The Hitchhiker's Guide to the Galaxy". The cluster is designed to provide a hight computing power and speed, enabling scientists, engineers, and researchers to perform complex simulations, data analysis, and modeling tasks with ease.
Marvin is equipped with state-of-the-art hardware and software components, including powerful CPUs, GPUs, high-speed interconnects (Infiniband), large-capacity storage devices (IBM Spectrum Scale), and specialized software libraries and tools for scientific computing managed by EasyBuild. The cluster is optimized for parallel computing, allowing users to break down complex tasks into smaller, more manageable chunks that can be processed simultaneously across multiple nodes.
Marvin is managed by a team of skilled administrators who ensure that the cluster runs smoothly and efficiently. They provide users with access to the cluster's resources and support them in using the cluster for their research projects. The cluster is available to users from different fields, focusing on biology, medicine, data science and others.
With its high-performance computing capabilities and advanced features, Marvin is a very valuable tool for researchers and scientists who need to process large amounts of data and perform complex simulations and calculations. Its name pays homage to one of the most beloved characters from science fiction, and it embodies the spirit of innovation and discovery that drives scientific research.
