DEEP-ER SDV

In the DEEP-ER project, software and application developers can rely on a software development vehicle, the SDV, until the final DEEP-ER prototype is available.

The DEEP-ER SDV consists of:

 

Xeon part (or SDV-Cluster)

  • 16 dual-socket Intel® Xeon® E5-2680 nodes
  • 16 NVMe cards Intel DC P3400, 400 GB each (one in each server)

 

Xeon Phi part (or SDV-Booster)

  • 8 Intel® Xeon Phi (KNL) nodes
  • 2 NVMe cards Intel DC P3400 (integrated in two of the KNL boards)
  • Storage
    • 2 storage servers (spinning disks, 57 TB) and
    • 1 metadata server (SSDs)

Additionally, the SDV has also one NAM (network attached memory) board integrated.
