Official documentation site of the high performance computing cluster UBELIX.
Currently, UBELIX runs about 320 compute nodes featuring almost 5'700 CPU cores and about 200'000 GPU cores. The infrastructure is available to all University personnel for scientific work. To have your Campus Account activated for UBELIX refer to Account Activation.
UBELIX features a plethora of software and applications, which is outlined on the page Software, but the users are free to compile and install their own software within their home directories.
If you are wondering... UBELIX is an acronym and stands for University of Bern Linux Cluster (Naming similarities to known Gauls are purely coincidental and not intended in any way).
When you present results generated using our Linux Cluster UBELIX, we kindly ask you to acknowledge the usage of UBELIX. We would also highly appreciate if you could send us a copy of your papers, posters and presentations mentioning UBELIX. Public visibility of our cluster and documenting results are important for us to ensure long-term funding of UBELIX.
Whenever the UBELIX infrastructure has been used to produce results used in a publication or poster, we kindly request citing the service in the acknowledgements:
Occasionally we are asked for images like diagrams illustrating the structure of UBELIX or even pictures of machines/storage or the like. Often this is due to the need to describe UBELIX within a research proposal. To support you with this, we provide a short text about UBELIX and some files to download. You can use all of this within your research proposal.
