Researchers at the University of Manchester will have access to a new computational resource this summer. N8 CIR was successful in bidding for a new Tier 2 computational resource in the EPSRC Tier 2 HPC call which took place in Autumn last year.
Two months ago the Research IT HPC Pool consisting of 4096 CPU cores of Infiniband-connected compute resource (all dedicated to true HPC work) went into production. Many researchers are already running jobs on this new resource which was delivered via Research Lifecycle Programme (RLP) Change Project Z: High performance compute investments. We are now pleased to announce the arrival of further compute resources which will be available to all UoM researchers by the beginning of June.
The EU funded “Performance Optimisation and Productivity (POP) Centre of Excellence (CoE) in Computing Applications” currently provides various services to help improve performance of parallel software, including software written using MPI and OpenMP and for GPUs.
