Webinar: Powering up your research with GPUs on NeSI

Over the last few years NeSI has been expanding and diversifying the types of advanced computing resources available on our national platform. Our newest Graphical Processing Units (GPUs) were brought online for production use earlier this year.

Join us on Tuesday 25 July from 10:00-11:00 am for a tour of what GPUs are currently available on NeSI, how these resources can support a range of research projects, and a look ahead at where to go from here.

Please feel free to pass along the invite to this webinar to any colleagues or communities you think might be interested – we’re keen to engage with and spread awareness of these resources to a range of domains. 

Topics covered:

This webinar will start with:

  • a brief tour of the various GPU resources available on NeSI and how to use them (eg. via batch scheduler (Slurm), interactively (using Jupyter on NeSI), etc.)
  • examples of available modules (CUDA, containers, Python packages, AlphaFold, etc.)

We'll then move into 15-20 minutes of discussion, covering topics such as:

  • domain / research community needs -- we're keen to hear feedback on what other GPU hardware, software, or training you'd like to see
  • general questions

Who should attend

This webinar would be of interest to anyone using computational methods in their research, particularly for large or complex workloads.
