GALATEA cluster ready

The whole CompBioLab is very happy to announce that our GPU-based cluster is here and ready to be used. It is a 176-based Nvidia GTX 1080 GPU cards that has been purchased thanks to the ERC-2015-StG-679001-NetMoDEzyme project. The cluster provides more than 1.2 PFlops in total!!!

We have decided that the new cluster will be named GALATEA, for the following reasons:

1. It comes from the greek mythology: Γαλάτεια; meaning “she is milk-white”, and was given to the statue carved of ivory by Pygmalion of Cyprus. He was so in love with the statue, that she then came to life.

2. It is a FEMALE robot in the bicentennial man movie

3. It is an icon of l’Empordà, and is in one of the most amazing places in Girona area. [And is also one of my favorite places]
