CLUMEQ maintains scientific computing facilites at 2 locations:
The first site is situated in Montreal on the camps of l'École de Technologie Supérieure(ETS), and was completed in the fall of 2010.
The site has a floor surface area of approximately 5000 square feet and an energy capacity of 1.5 MegaWatts. Chilled water loops provide efficient cooling to the hosted IT equipment. A UPS system provides power backup to key server and storage components of the centre. The site can accommodate approximately 72 racks of servers for compute and storage equipment.
The second site is situated in Quebec City on the campus of l'Université Laval.
Completed in the spring of 2009 this site possesses a unique design. The silo of a former particle accelerator, of the "Van der Graaff" type, was restructured into a cooling compound of high-energy efficiency. This site can accommodate 56 cabinets of servers distributed on 3 levels according to a cylindrical construction. Its cooling capacity surpasses 1.2 megawatts.
