II.2.4)Description of the procurement:

DTU’s Department of Physics invites tenders for a Linux cluster High Performance Computer system to be used for floating-point intensive numerical simulations using the researchers’ own developed computer codes as well as commercial codes. The main scientific research focus is on studies of materials and materials design at the atomic scale using quantum-mechanical calculations. The primary quantum-mechanical codes employed are GPAW, VASP, and ADF.

Tenderers are expected to offer very fast processors and compute nodes for such applications. The system must be air cooled and have a compact form factor and a simple design targeted at scale-out high performance computing. Floor space for a row of up to eight (8) 42U/60 cm racks will be made available in an existing server room. A few additional rack spaces in another row can be made available if more than 8 racks are offered.

The cluster must have a High performance and low latency 100 Gbit/s network fabric, in addition to 1 Gbit Ethernet networks. Pre-existing storage servers use NFS over Ethernet, Omni-Path and Infini-band.

The maximum available power is 20 kW per rack, and therefore each rack should contain at most 40 compute nodes in addition to the network equipment.

Tenderers are encouraged to give multiple offers based upon different x86_64 compatible CPU ven-dors, different CPU SKUs, and different High speed fabric vendors.

The system performance evaluation of offers will be based upon a GPAW code benchmark as specified in Appendix 3. The product of the benchmark result numerical value for a single node, times the number of compute nodes offered, should be as high as possible.

The system must be interoperable with a pre-existing Linux cluster named Niflheim whose configuration is described in the web page https://wiki.fysik.dtu.dk/niflheim/Hardware.

The total contract value is fixed at 12 million DKK (12 000 000 DKK). The contract value is inclusive of customs, duties, and all expenses on the part of the contractor but exclusive of VAT. The contract value comprises the Tenderer’s fixed price products and services (elements/product types/equipment/services) until the products/services are delivered, installed, tested and put into op-eration. Tenderers therefore should offer the best high performance computer system within the fixed contract value.
