“HybriLIT” Heterogeneous Platform

The “HybriLIT” Heterogeneous Platform is part of the Multifunctional Information and Computing Complex (MICC) of the Laboratory of Information Technologies at the Joint Institute for Nuclear Research. . The heterogeneous platform consists of the “Govorun” supercomputer and the “HybriLIT” education and testing polygon.

The “GOVORUN” Supercomputer is a two-component system that includes a CPU-component based on the latest Intel architectures (Intel Xeon Phi and Intel Skylake processors), and a GPU-component based on NVIDIA DGX-1 Volta.

The education and testing polygon is based on the heterogeneous structure of computational nodes and allows developing parallel applications for carrying out calculations using various computing architectures such as multicore CPUs, Intel Xeon Pho co-processors, and NVIDIA (Tesla K20, K40, K80) GPUs. It also provides a possibility to hold tutorials in parallel programming technologies that help students to learn novel computing architectures.
