The platform ABiMS offers a HPC/Cluster infrastructure based on the scheduler SLURM. It represents:
  • 2600 Core CPU handled by the scheduler SLURM,
  • a secure data storage (RAID) of 2 PB
Since 2020, the whole cluster insfrastructure and some of its side applications had been refactoring. All the administration is now managed as a Infrastructure-as-Code (IaC). All the administration is done using the Ansible playbooks pushed on GitLab and some Continuous Integration robots (GitLab-CI). (Cf: Software layer)
This infrastructure has been financed by multiple sources :
  • Région Bretagne - BioGenOuest
  • Conseil Général - CG29
  • ANR projects 
  • Station Biologique de Roscoff: FR2424, UMR8227, UMR7144
  • Investissements d'Avenir projects: EMBRC-France, IDEALG, Océanomics, IFB
  • GRSIBI projects.
In 2021, the number of users is evenly distributed between internal "Station Biologique de Roscoff" and external.
