About cluster

High-performance computing cluster of Information and Computer Center of National Taras Shevchenko University of Kyiv, is a part of "Kyiv University Network" project. It was created to solve applied problems that require high computational time and operate with large information contents. [more...]

First attempts to construct computing cluster were performed in April 1999 at the Scientific Experiment Automation Sector of Radiophysics Faculty of National Taras Shevchenko University of Kyiv. In November 1999 the first computing cluster that consisted of four workstations was created at Information and Computer Center of National Taras Shevchenko University of Kyiv. [more...]

Kyiv National Taras Shevchenko University computing cluster belongs to the BEOWULF-type heterogeneous clusters. System consists of 22 dual-processor nodes based on Intel® Pentium-III 933 MHz and 1GHz, Intel® Xeon™ 2.0GHz and 2.4 GHz, Intel® Xeon® EM64T 3.2 ├├÷. Gigabit Ethernet is used for high-speed and service interconnect. [more...]

Cluster works under Linux operating system with kernel 2.4.x and 2.6.x. [more...]

The usage of computing cluster is free for University employees with the condition of with observing the rules of usage. The representatives of other institutions can use cluster resources under agreement with National Taras Shevchenko University of Kyiv.[more...]



User access to cluster resources has been temporary prevented in order to software renewal and architecture changes that will provide faster performance and greater reliability. Functionality will resume as soon after critical fixes and new features become avaliable.


Hardware and software update was performed on the cluster:

Five new computing nodes have been added

  • 1 node 2-way 4-core Intel(R) Xeon(R) CPU X5355 2.66GHz
  • 4 nodes 2-way 2-core Intel(R) Xeon(TM) CPU 3.00GHz

Storage array have been added

  • 5 Ď┬ytes

OS upgrade to Fedora Core 7.

Cluster infrastructure have been reorganized

Now system is under testing. We plan to launch cluster into production till September the 1-st.

We bag our apologies for temporary inconvenience
