Stanford AI Hackathon: Cluster Request

September 20, 2017

To support the computing needs of this hackathon participants, Intel® Nervana™ AI Academy is making computing resources available via Remote Access. Request Access Now Please fill out and submit the form below to request access to the Colfax Cluster. You will get additional instructions via the email address that you provide. Do you have a free account at Colfax Research? Save time by logging in – we will fill in the fields with data from your profile. What’s Inside When you get access, you will log in to a Linux-based head node of a batch farm. There you can stage your code and data, compile, and submit calculations to a queue. Once the queued job completes, your results will be in your home folder. Your account is active until Nov 5th 11:59 PDT Jobs are scheduled on Intel® Xeon Phi™ processors 7210 (formerly Knights Landing) Each processor has 64 cores with 4-way hyper-threading. Each processor has access to 96 GiB of on-platform RAM (DDR4) and 16 GiB of high-bandwidth memory (MCDRAM). Only one job will run on any processor at a time. You will get 200 GB of file [...]

Get the Most out of Your Free Trial of Intel Xeon Phi Processors

April 7, 2017

Free Webinar Abstract Intel® Xeon Phi™ processors x200 (formerly Knights Landing) are computational beasts. Their theoretical peak performance is up to 3 TFLOP/s and measured memory bandwidth is up to 490 GB/s. This performance is available without any difference in programming models compared to general-purpose x86-like CPUs. Colfax is offering a free trial program for this technology. This program is available through Intel’s sponsorship. The Colfax Cluster has 64 compute nodes based on Intel Xeon Phi 7250 processors. Intel® Omni-Path fabric interconnects the nodes. This cluster is at your service for two weeks for testing and evaluation. In this 1-hour webinar I will describe how you can get the most out of your two weeks on the cluster: What workloads you can run to see the performance How to prepare your own code to run on the cluster Where to learn the best optimization practices for this and similar architectures Slides:  Colfax-Remote-Access-Webinar-2017.pdf (2 MB) — this file is available only to registered users. Register or Log In. Free trial: here [...]
