As of November 2018, the map of the Spanish Supercomputing Network will be made up of 11 institutions and 12 supercomputers. The Magerit node, hosted at the Centro de Supercomputación y Visualización de Madrid (CeSViMa) of the Polytechnic University of Madrid, has formalised its withdrawal from the RES and will no longer offer resources to users.
CeSViMa was founded in 2004 and was part of the RES since 2007. The supercomputer of this centre, called Magerit, became the most powerful and energy-efficient in Spain with its 2011 update, according to the Top500 list. During the 12 years that the centre has been offering services to the RES, Magerit has provided more than 97 million computing hours to 333 research activities and to 460 users.
The withdrawal from the RES has been motivated by the increase in the technical requirements to stay in the network and the increase of costs for the UPM. In the future, the centre will continue promoting supercomputing and offering resources to the internal users of the UPM. The RES Council has transmitted to CeSViMa coordinators their gratitude and recognition for the effort and work done during the many years participating in the RES.
