New GPU node in Göttingen

New GPU node in Göttingen

We are happy to announce that the first GPU node went into production in Göttingen today. The node (ggpu01) has the following hardware:

  • 2 x Intel Skylake Gold 6148 CPUs (40 cores per node)
  • 192 GB memory
  • 1 x 480 GB solid-state disk
  • 1 x Intel Omni-Path host fabric adapter
  • 4 x NVIDIA Tesla V100 GPUs

This node will be a shared node for data pre- and postprocessing as well as machine learning. The CUDA and cuDNN libraries are installed on the node and a GPU accelerated TensorFlow environment has been added to the anaconda3/2019.03 module. More information on how to use the GPUs can be found in our documentation.
