Pawsey Adds NVIDIA GPUs to Its Free HPC Cloud Service

Pawsey Supercomputing Centre

The Pawsey Supercomputing Centre is expanding its Nimbus cloud service with NVIDIA V100 GPU-powered servers in order to provide additional capabilities for researchers.

The existing Nimbus infrastructure is relatively modest as HPC cloud setups go, consisting of 3,000 CPU cores, apparently based on the now-ancient AMD Opteron processors. (Why such old CPUs were used in a cloud service launched in 2017 is a mystery.) The new addition will be comprised of six HPE SX40 nodes, each equipped with two NVIDIA Tesla V100 accelerators.
