Software layer

The cluster is managed by Slurm (version 20.11.8).

Scientific software and tools are available through Environment Modules and are mainly based on Conda packages or Singularity images.

Operating System: CentOS (cluster) and sometimes Ubuntu

Around the cluster management: Nagios Core, Netbox, Proxmox VE, VMware ESX.

Deployment and configuration are powered by Ansible and GitLab. Schema orchestration
