The CECI clusters are open to all members of the Wallonia-Brussels universities.
The Consortium des Equipements pour le Calcul Inensif is a virtual organisation aiming at enabling and facilitating access to Tier-2 clusters deployed in the universities of the Wallonia-Brussels federation and the Tier-1 cluster hosted at Cenaero. The clusters are inter-connected between the universities and a distributed storage is accessible via a dedicated Belnet 10 Gbps network. Users from UCL, ULB, ULg, UNamur & UMons can create a CECI account and run jobs on the CECI clusters.
Check the CECI web site for all the details.
ULB users are therefore entitled - and warmly encouraged - to create a CECI account and use the available resources within CECI.
Detailed information on how to connect to CECI clusters are given on the CECI web site.
The Tier-1 cluster access is based on projects submission and evaluation. The Tier-1 cluster is used either for large parallel jobs (> 1000 cores) or for running a very large batch of small jobs (batches of > 1000 jobs). Please read the procedure for creating a Tier-1 project and feel free to contact us for help in preparing your Tier-1 project.
