Dirac GPU Cluster
Current Status: Up
NOTICE: Dirac was shut down permanently and retired from service at 17:00 on Friday, December 12, 2014.
Dirac was a testbed experimental system that well served its intended purpose of allowing users to evaluate GPU technologies. It was removed from service on December 12, 2014.
Dirac is a 48-node GPU cluster intended to help researchers better understand the use of GPUs for scientific applications. Access is available to those who want to investigate the following: GPU computing using CUDA and/or OpenCL. Scaling codes on a multi-GPU system. Evaluate programming models for using GPUs in HPC, e.g. MPI + CUDA, OpenMP + CUDA, etc. To request access to Dirac, please fill out the form below. You can expect a response from NERSC within two weeks. Please contact the NERSC… Read More »
