The ICMAT has a high-capacity scientific computing infrastructure co-financed by the Comunidad de Madrid via the project SIMUMAT.
The cluster ODISEA was purchased in the first place, which was expanded by the CSIC PAI in the period 2008-2009. This computer has 16 nodes with two processors and 4GB of RAM each. There is a double connecting network between nodes: Gigabit and Infiniband.
Subsequently in late 2009, responding to the needs of numerical calculation, the ICMAT boosted its capacity by purchasing ADA and GRACE, two new HP hexacore servers with eight and six nodes, respectively, and 4GB RAM each. Therefore, ADA has 192GB RAM and GRACE 92GB. These servers hold a built-in RAID controller, redundant power supply unit and fans and slots to expand with SAS drives.
ICMAT researchers also have access to the Supercomputer FINIS TERRAE at CESGA (Santiago de Compostela) which has been half funded by CSIC. This supercomputer is one of the largest in Europe with shared memory (almost 20000GB RAM and 2600 processors).
