The VEGA supercomputer was commissioned in October 2014 at the temporary campus of IIT Gandhinagar. The facility consisted of 192 CPU cores and 4 numbers of K20Xm GPU cards. The VEGA supercomputer was expanded in November 2018 by the addition of 528 CPU cores, 2 numbers of Pascal GPU cards connected over 56Gbps of interconnect. Currently, the VEGA supercomputer consists of 720 CPU cores, 6 GPU cards, and 25 TB of usable SAN storage space.

VEGA Queuing System


Please send an email to with a copy to your supervisor. Also please do let us know the duration of the account required and the list of software which you wish to run.

The quota for each user is 100 GB in home directory. There is no per-user limit for the scratch folder.
quota -v your username /home/your Supervisor_grp/username

The SLURM scheduler will automatically find the required number of processing cores from nodes (even if a node is partially used). Please do not explicitly specify the node number/number of nodes in the script. A priority based queueing system is implemented so that all users get a fair share of available resources. The priority will be decided on multiple factors including job size, queue priority, past and present usage, time spent on queue etc.

It is strongly recommended that users backup their files-folders periodically, as Supercomputer support team will not be having a mechanism to backup users’ data. An automatic email will be sent to the Supercomputer user community once 75 % of the scratch is used. Another automatic email will be sent to the users once 85% of the scratch space is used. The deletion of the files by the administrator will commence within 24 hours of the second email. Deletion of files in scratch directory will be automatically done in scratch 21 days after the last time stamp/update.

Users are strictly NOT ALLOWED to run any jobs on the Master Nodes or any other node in an interactive manner. Users must run jobs only using the scripts through the job scheduler.
