The Maginet PC Cluster

The Quantum Chemistry Group in Tarragona has its own computational facilities.
Since the late 1990s, a PC cluster called "Maginet" is our calculation center:
It is composed of ~86 nodes with a total number of ~1.546 cores. It provides 9.0 TB memory, 72.9 TB of disk and 55.4 Tflops.
"Llac" is our calculation center. It is composed of ~76 nodes with a total number of ~1632 cores. It provides 6.0 TB memory, 116 TB of disk and 44.0 Tflops.
In this cluster, many computational packages are installed ((ADF, Gaussian, Turbomole, MOLCAS, VASP, etc.). Some of these programs allow parallelization, so that some of the PC nodes are put together to form a single queue.
