The NICA LHEP offline computing cluster

The first offline computing cluster created specially for the NICA

Slurm Workload Manager

Slurm workload manager is useful when you have a lot of tasks to execute and want to distribute the tasks over a cluster of machines.


EOS is a disk-based, low-latency storage service. Having a highly-scalable hierarchical namespace, and with data access possible by the XROOT protocol, it was initially used for physics data storage.


Data transfer rate up to 400 Gbit per second between computing nodes of the NICA complex in JINR.
Between cluster nodes, the speed is 100 Gbps.
