High-performance computing (HPC) systems are undergoing a significant transformation with the rising popularity of GPU-based systems. The advantages they offer, such as enhanced data analysis, improved power efficiency, and faster research progress, are clear. However, realising these benefits demands the right tools, skills, and time to harness the potential of GPUs.
The complexity is compounded by the various approaches to GPU programming that have emerged, tailored to the diverse requirements and limitations of different research teams. At DiRAC, our commitment is to support all our users effectively. To achieve this, we organise a variety of events aimed at accommodating different approaches to GPU utilisation. This ensures that researchers have access to the resources and knowledge needed to leverage GPUs for their specific research needs and constraints.
