19 April 2021-Computing hardware manufacturer AMD has donated 10 server systems to the High-Performance Computing Center Stuttgart (HLRS) that will be dedicated for research related to the SARS-CoV‑2 pandemic. The new resources, which were delivered this week, will also expand HLRS’s capacity to address future urgent computing needs.
The donation comes as part of the AMD COVID-19 High Performance Computing Fund, which was established in April 2020 to provide research institutions around the world with computing resources to accelerate medical research on COVID-19 and other diseases. HLRS is among the first European HPC centers to receive a donation under phase two of this program.
The new AMD nodes will be integrated into HLRS’s Vulcan cluster. Each of the donated servers contains one AMD EPYC™ processor and eight AMD Instinct™ accelerators, which are optimized for applications involving machine learning, deep learning, and artificial intelligence. The server systems, built by Penguin Computing, will offer 530 TFlops of 64-bit floating-point performance.
