Casper cluster getting two more multi-GPU nodes

February 1, 2019

The Casper cluster will be expanded soon with the addition of two nodes. The new nodes are similar to the two existing Supermicro nodes with eight NVIDIA Tesla V100 GPUs. They will support ongoing and future machine learning and deep learning efforts.

The new nodes have been received and are being installed by CISL staff at the NCAR-Wyoming Supercomputing Center. When the installation is complete, CISL system administrators and software engineers will begin acceptance testing, which is expected to take several weeks. More details will be published when the new nodes are ready for users.
