CHiC Tour

Once again in this year, a tour around the Chemnitzer Hochleistungs-Linux-Cluster (CHiC), a high-performance Linux cluster, will be offered. This cluster replaces the Chemnitzer Linux Cluster (CLiC) which was decomissioned in 2007. The CHiC comes up with 530 nodes that are connected by InfiniBand and a memory complex of 60 Terabyte. Therewith the CHiC makes the research a lot more easier for students and scientists. On Saturday evening, Torsten Mehlan, one of the supervisors of the CHiC, will give a tour around the cluster to those who are interested. He will introduce the project and of course answer some questions.

Further information about the cluster are available at:

Those who don't want to miss this opportunity should get in touch with the information desk on Saturday.

The tour will start at 6pm on 14 March 2009 at the gatekeeper house (Pförtnerhaus) of the TU's main building (Straße der Nationen 62).
In order to get to the meeting place you can go by bus (line 51, bus stop opposite the venue) and get off at "Zentralhaltestelle" then take tram 4 or 6 and get off at "Schillerplatz" (the stop is located opposite the meeting place).
