Irfu has computer rooms in building 141 equipped with 31 racks, housing about 7000 cores and a storage capacity of 5 Petabytes. They were modernised between 2013 and 2017 and are today cooled by a centralised and highly energy-efficient free-chilling system with a capacity of 770 kW. Based on current projections, this capacity guarantees long-term operation until 2025.
More specifically, the computer rooms host:
Left: IRFU contribution to LHC calculations; Right: a) evolution of CPU and storage resources at the IRFU GRIF node. b) Evolution of GRID node resources — 1 CPU core is equal to about 20 HS06.
