ENEAGRID/CRESCO

ENEAGRID/CRESCO, an integrated computational infrastructure:

  • offering a production quality, service oriented system for high performance and/or high throughput computing;
  • covering all the computational resources belonging to ENEA DTE-ICT (ICT Division), connected in a Wide Area Network. The most relevant resources are the CRESCO Clusters based on x86_64 architecture; the main site is Portici ENEA Research Center hosting CRESCO6 (~700 TFlops), CRESCO4 (~100 Tflops) , CRESCO5 (~25 Tflops) Clusters.
  • providing a unified user environment and an homogeneous access method for all ENEA researchers irrespective of their location;
  • implementing tools to facilitate the integration of departments and individual resources and to support to experimental facilities.
