Abstract:

The following computer systems were purchased using the funding provided by DOD award W911NF1810476 1 IBM POWER9 8335-GTH AC922 System with 4x NVIDIA V100 GPUs, 1 Ace Powerworks GPU Server with 4x NVIDIA V100 GPUs, 2 SuperMicro A 4023S-TRT Servers, 1 SuperMicro SYS-2029TP-HTR Chassis with Four Compute Nodes, and 4 NVIDIA Jetson AGX Xavier Development Kits. These systems were integrated into the Euler Cluster, a heterogeneous supercomputer used by Negrut and collaborators at the University of Wisconsin Madison in order to run large scale and high-performance simulations of multibody dynamics, computational fluid dynamics, and computer vision. These systems were selected because they provide modern CPU and GPU hardware accelerators for these types of simulations. They containcomponents which would otherwise not be available to these researchers, e.g., Tensor Core accelerated GPUs, the NVLink interconnect, IBM POWER, AMD EPYC, Intel Xeon Gold CPUs, and NVIDIAs embedded Arm CPUGPU systems. Additionally, several GPU devices and accessories were purchased in order to replace both obsolete and defective hardware already present in the Euler Cluster.
