Improved Cetus development system enables new HPC use cases

cetus3Mira’s testing and development system, a Blue Gene/Q called Cetus, has grown to 4 racks to allow users to debug their project code at an even larger scale before moving to Mira.

This upgrade will support new types of HPC workloads. Smaller jobs (128-2048 nodes) will now be allowed to run for up to 12 hours. Longer running jobs (128-1024 nodes) will be allowed to run for up to 7 days, which is suitable for analysis activities since Cetus and Mira share the same file system.
