Increasing the Throughput of your GPU-enabled Cluster with rCUDA

rcuda

“Although the use of GPUs has generalized nowadays, including GPUs in current HPC clusters presents several drawbacks mainly related with increased costs. In this talk we present how the use of remote GPU virtualization may overcome these drawbacks while noticeably increasing the overall cluster throughput. The talk presents real throughput measurements by making use of the rCUDA remote GPU virtualization middleware.”

Nvidia Salutes Women Who CUDA

cuda2

This week Nvidia salutes Women who use CUDA for incredible science and engineering. They’ve compiled 30 profiles so far, and the advice they share from their experiences is quite inspiring. “It’s a good way to remind people that women write code, participate in open-source projects, and invent things,” said Lorena Barba from George Washington University. “It’s important to make the technology world more attractive to female students and show them examples of women who are innovators.”

Increasing the Efficiency of Your GPU-enabled Cluster with rCUDA

rcud

“The use of GPUs to accelerate applications is mainstream nowadays, but their adoption in current high performance computing clusters is primarily impaired by the trend of including accelerators in all the nodes of the cluster, as this presents several drawbacks related with increased costs. In this talk we introduce the remote GPU virtualization mechanism, intended to address the drawbacks of GPU computing. The rCUDA remote GPU virtualization framework will also be presented.”

With Bulk, CUDA Thrust API Now Supports Streams and Concurrent Tasks

Rob Farber

“Bulk leverages Hyper-Q and CUDA streams to run concurrent tasks on the GPU. It lets the programmer describe a parallel task (e.g. sort, for_each, reduction, etcetera) as a hierarchical grouping of execution agents.”
