GPU accelerated servers
The department deploys numerous servers that house GPUs for code acceleration. The servers contain 1 to 8 GPUs of various types. See the “Computing Resources” section for a complete list.
These GPU servers are in two groups, general purpose (direct login) servers and servers controlled by the SLURM job scheduler (see the section on SLURM for information on accessing job scheduled GPU servers).

Your home directory is automatically mounted for you upon login. Project directories are also mounted automatically upon access.
Most popular software is already available on these servers, so you do not need to install it. See: Software Modules
