The supported computing centers (also called computing environment) that can be used with the IPSL Climate Modeling Center tools and models are described in this chapter.
The IDRIS (Institute for Development and Resources in Intensive Scientific Computing) is one of the 3 national high performance computing centers of CNRS. The center is located at Orsay (Essonne). All of the IPSL models and tools are supported and maintained for the IDRIS's CPU machine.
The TGCC (Très Grand Centre de Calcul) is another one of the 3 national high performance computing centers of CNRS. The center is located on the CEA site, at Bruyères-le-Châtel (Essonne). All of the IPSL models and tools are supported and maintained for the TGCC's CPU machine.
The CINES (Centre Informatique National de l’Enseignement Supérieur) is the third national high performance computing centers of CNRS. The center is located at Montpellier (Hérault). The tools modipsl/libIGCM are not maintained for this center's machine.
CINES environment (not supported)
The LSCE (Laboratoire des Sciences du Climat et de l'Environnement) has his own cluster on which you can use a part of the IPSL models and tools.
LSCE computing environment
CICLAD and ClimServ are IPSL computing clusters, located at Jussieu campus (Paris) and at Polytechnique in Palaiseau (Essonne). A part of the IPSL models and tools is supported for these machines.
