Grid'5000 is a large-scale and flexible testbed for experiment-driven research in all areas of computer science, with a focus on parallel and distributed computing including Cloud, HPC and Big Data and AI.
- provides access to a large amount of resources: 15000 cores, 800 compute-nodes grouped in homogeneous clusters, and featuring various technologies: PMEM, GPU, SSD, NVMe, 10G and 25G Ethernet, Infiniband, Omni-Path
- highly reconfigurable and controllable: researchers can experiment with a fully customized software stack thanks to bare-metal deployment features, and can isolate their experiment at the networking layer
- advanced monitoring and measurement features for traces collection of networking and power consumption, providing a deep understanding of experiments
- designed to support Open Science and reproducible research, with full traceability of infrastructure and software changes on the testbed
- a vibrant community of 500+ users supported by a solid technical team

New cluster “montcalm” available in Toulouse
We have the pleasure to announce the re-opening of Toulouse site and a new cluster named “montcalm” available in the testing queue. It features 9 HPE Proliant DL360 Gen10+ nodes with two Intel Xeon Silver 4314 CPUs, 256GB of RAM, one 960GB SAS SSD.
See our hardware page for details about this cluster: https://www.grid5000.fr/w/Toulouse:Hardware
In order to support the SLICES-FR project, the new site infrastructure has been funded by CNRS/INS2I and the cluster “montcalm” has been funded by University Paul Sabatier (UT3).
About the name: Montcalm  is a French pyrenean summit, culminating at 3,077 m (10,095 ft), located in the Ariège department, Midi-Pyrénées region of France.

End of availability of clusters chetemi et chifflet at Lille
Due to technical constraints, we have scheduled the shutdown of the "chetemi" and "chifflet" clusters hosted at the Grid'5000 site in Lille for June 30, 2023.
We invite you to anticipate this shutdown and use the other clusters available in Lille or on the other Grid'5000 sites.
Please visit https://www.grid5000.fr/w/Hardware
We're working on the installation of new clusters in Lille that will be connected to Grid'5000 after the summer. We'll let you know more about the details of the equipment and its availability in a future announcement.
If these retirements are a problem for you, do not hesitate to contact us.
Thank you for your understanding
