Federated accelerated computing

Place

Location: Villa Romanazzi Carducci
Room: Scuderia
Date: 11 Nov 11:00 - 12:30

Description

Accelerated computing systems deliver energy efficient and powerful HPC capabilities. Many EGI sites are providing accelerated computing technologies to enable high performance processing such as GPGPUs or MIC co-processors. Currently these accelerated capabilities are not directly supported by the EGI platforms. To use the co-processors capabilities available at resource centre level, users must directly interact with the local provider to get information about the type of resources and software libraries available and which submission queues must be used to submit tasks of accelerated computing. The session follows the one held in Lisbon in May, and will discuss the progress on the roadmap to achieve the federation of GPGPU or MIC co-processors capabilities across EGI HTC and Cloud platforms. Service providers as well as user communities interested in the use of accelerated computing facilities across Europe are invited to participate bringing their requirements.

Type: Presentation Session: Federated accelerated computing
There are number of software for bioinformatics simulations used in MolDynGrid virtual laboratory (VL) [1] for in silico calculations of molecular dynamics, including GROMACS, NAMD, Autodock, etc [2-3]. Computational resources for such simulations are provided by a number of HPC clusters that are mostly the part of Ukrainian National Grid (UNG) infrastructure powered by Nordugrid ARC [4] and few c ...

Type: Presentation Session: Federated accelerated computing
As part of the activities of the MoBrain Competence Center within the EGI-Engage project, we have implemented services for the use of molecular dynamics (MD) simulations on biological macromolecules (proteins, nucleic acids) based on the AMBER suite and taking advantage of GPGPU architectures within a grid computational infrastructure. The rationale for this development is to improve upon the too ... More
