GPU (Graphics Processing Unit) are accelerators that can be efficiently utilized in HPC to speed-up calculations that deal with lots of data. GPUs have successfully been used to speed-up applications such as machine learning, weather forecasting, molecular dynamics, among many other applications.
At NRIS we have a dedicated team to support researchers in utilizing the different accelerators at your disposal. You can contact the team through the normal support channel.
Example of activities that NRIS supports:
Helping to use Slurm and GPUs
Ensure software is set up for GPUs
Advice about how to get starting using GPUs
Transition to using GPUs
Optimizing existing GPU implementations
With a focus on software developed at the universities in Norway
Both from NRIS and in collaboration with vendors
