Why UIUC Built HPC Application Containers for NVIDIA GPU Cloud

In this video from the GPU Technology Conference, John Stone from the University of Illinois describes how container technology in the NVIDIA GPU Cloud help the University distribute accelerated applications for science and engineering. “Containers are a way of packaging up an application and all of its dependencies in such a way that you can install them collectively on a cloud instance or a workstation or a compute node. And it doesn’t require the typical amount of system administration skills and involvement to put one of these containers on a machine.”

The HPC application containers available on NVIDIA GPU Cloud (NGC) drastically improve ease of application deployment, while delivering optimized performance. The containers include HPC applications such as NAMD, GROMACS, and Relion. NGC gives researchers and scientists the flexibility to run HPC application containers on NVIDIA Pascal­ and NVIDIA Volta-powered systems including Quadro-powered workstations, NVIDIA DGX Systems, and HPC clusters.

Mellanox InfiniBand Delivers up to 250 Percent Higher ROI for HPC

Today Mellanox announced that EDR 100Gb/s InfiniBand solutions have demonstrated from 30 to 250 percent higher HPC applications performance versus Omni-Path. These performance tests were conducted at end-user installations and Mellanox benchmarking and research center, and covered a variety of HPC application segments including automotive, climate research, chemistry, bioscience, genomics and more.
