The most advanced AI system and two new clusters for demanding calculations in MetaCenter

Dear users,

we are pleased to announce that we have acquired some very interesting new HW for MetaCenter.

For more information, please also see the press release e-INFRA CZ "Researchers in the Czech Republic get the most advanced AI system and two new clusters for demanding technical calculations"


Masaryk University (CERIT-SC) has become a pioneer in supporting artificial intelligence (AI) and high-performance computing technology with the installation of the latest and most advanced NVIDIA DGX H100 system. This is the first facility of its kind in the entire country (and Europe), bringing extreme computing power and innovative research capabilities.

Featuring the latest NVIDIA Hopper GPU architecture, the DGX H100 features eight advanced NVIDIA H100 Tensor Core GPUs, each with 80GB of GPU memory. This enables parallel processing of huge data volumes and dramatically accelerates computing tasks.

NVIDIA DGX H100 system configuration:

The DGX H100 server comes with a pre-installed software package NVIDIA DGX, which includes a comprehensive set of software tools for deep learning tools, including pre-configured environments.

The machine is available on-demand in a dedicated queue at
To request access, contact In your request, describe the reasons for allocating this resource (need and ability to use it effectively). At the same time, briefly describe the expected results, the expected volume of resources and the time scale of the approach needed.


2) TURIN and TYRA clusters

In addition, MetaCenter users can start using two brand new computing clusters acquired by CESNET. The first one has been launched at the Institute of Molecular Genetics of the Academy of Sciences of the Czech Republic in Prague under the name TURIN and the second one at the Institute of Computer Science of Masaryk University in Brno under the name TYRA.

The Prague TURIN cluster has 52 nodes, each with 64 CPU cores and 512 GB of RAM. Its Brno colleague TYRA is composed of 44 nodes and otherwise with identical technical specifications.

Both clusters are equipped with AMD processors along with AMD 3D V-Cache technology. These are the most powerful server processors designed for demanding calculations.
