GPU Support

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

  • Training

    • Both from NRIS and in collaboration with vendors

  • Documentation and tutorials.
