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.”

Recent announcements, analyst reports, conferences and anecdotal evidence point to a certain upswing for high performance computing in industry. Many industries have reaped the benefit of HPC for considerable time and are now stepping up a gear with their systems – some even on a par with national facilities, in order to maintain or extend their advantage. Whether in upstream exploration, engine design or aerodynamics – if you can scale up or scale out, you can derive advantage.
