Hosted at the École de technologie supérieure at the Université due Québec, Béluga is a heterogeneous and versatile cluster designed to handle a variety of workloads. In general, Béluga's software environment and file system structures will be very similar to Cedar and Graham. It will also use the same Slurm scheduler, and many of the same modules as the other national systems. Béluga's name was chosen to reference the beluga whale, a marine mammal commonly found in the waters of Québec's St. Lawrence River.
