Description: Jetstream2 is a user-friendly cloud environment designed to give researchers and students access to computing and data analysis resources on demand as well as for gateway and other infrastructure projects. This is for the GPU-specific Jetstream2 resources only. Jetstream2 GPU is a hybrid-cloud platform that provides flexible, on-demand, programmable cyberinfrastructure tools ranging from interactive virtual machine services to a variety of infrastructure and orchestration services for research and education. This particular portion of the resource is allocated separately from the primary resource and contains 360 NVIDIA A100 GPUs -- 4 GPUs per node, 128 AMD Milan cores, and 512gb RAM connected by 100gbps ethernet to the spine.

Recommended Use: For the researcher needing GPUs for virtual machine services on demand as well as for software creators and researchers needing to create their own customized virtual machine environments. Additional use cases are for research-supporting infrastructure services that need to be "always on" as well as science gateway services and for education support, providing virtual machines for students. The A100 GPUs on Jetstream2-GPU are well-suited for machine learning/deep learning projects and other codes optimized for GPU usage. They also may be utilized for some graphical/desktop applications with some effort.

User Guide:

Gateway Recommended Use: Jetstream2 provides virtual machines and infrastructure that may be customized for Gateway use that specifically require GPUs. All of the Gateway Support Attributes (including: Community Accounts, Data Collection Hosting for Gateways, Virtual Hosting of Gateways, Database Hosting,Web Service Hosting) are available on Jetstream2 though they require development. Jetstream2 only provides the framework for all of these services. Gateway developers are responsible for building and maintaining these services. Container orchestration and virtual clusters are also available services on Jetstream2.
