LUMI’s 2nd Pilot Phase in Full Swing

November 17, 2022

Nov. 17, 2022 — LUMI’s second pilot phase aims to test the scalability of the GPU partition and generate workloads on the GPUs, 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.

These 28 selected projects for the pilot phase were chosen from the LUMI consortium countries and are presenting various disciplines:

Full Operations Starting Soon

After the GPU pilot phase, LUMI will be almost fully operational and general availability is foreseen to start in December 2022.

Please see the Get started section of the LUMI website for more information how to access LUMI and follow LUMI’s website and social media channels for more information about upcoming calls to access the system.
