Date: Wed, 14 Oct 2015 17:38:54 +0300 From: Solar Designer <solar@...nwall.com> To: announce@...ts.openwall.com Subject: [openwall-announce] HPC Village update; ZeroNights 2015 Hi, In 2013, we've setup HPC Village, a hobbyist heterogeneous (hybrid) High Performance Computing (HPC) platform: http://www.openwall.com/lists/announce/2013/10/23/1 HPC Village has been available to Open Source software developers (and to some others) during those 2 years. Participants are provided with remote access (via the SSH protocol) to a server with multi-core CPUs (16 cores, 32 logical CPUs, 128 GB RAM) and HPC accelerator cards of different kinds - Intel MIC (Xeon Phi), AMD GPU, NVIDIA GPU - as well as with pre-installed and configured drivers and development tools (SDKs): http://openwall.info/wiki/HPC/Village I have good news: we've recently added to the mix an NVIDIA GTX Titan X, the largest GPU card based on NVIDIA's latest Maxwell architecture. This purchase was fully sponsored by Sagitta HPC, a subsidiary of Stricture Group LLC. Sagitta HPC specializes on delivery of hardware and software "solutions that are designed by world-renowned password cracking experts and are tailored for information security, forensics, law enforcement, and litigation support professionals". If you need a GPU rig for password cracking, please consider purchasing from them: https://sagitta.pw With this, the main HPC Village machine offers two NVIDIA GPU architectures (Maxwell and Kepler) and two AMD GPU architectures (GCN and VLIW5), along with Xeon Phi and the CPUs. I have more good news: besides the main HPC Village machine described above, we may also provide access to let's say non-HPC development boxes, such as with Intel AVX2, Intel HD Graphics 4600 (with a configured and working OpenCL "driver"), AMD XOP, AMD GCN 1.1, NVIDIA Fermi, some non-x86 architectures (ARM, MIPS64, Epiphany), some FPGAs (ZedBoard with Xilinx Zynq 7020, ZTEX 1.15y with quad Xilinx Spartan-6 LX150). The exact set of these keeps changing. Please feel free to inquire about availability of these or/and other resources if relevant to your project. I have even more good news: just like in 2013, we're once again providing access not only to Open Source developers, but also to any interested attendees to ZeroNights 2015, a convention to be held in Moscow, Russia on November 25-26, 2015: http://2015.zeronights.org (English) http://2015.zeronights.ru (Russian) Please see the wiki page for exact eligibility requirements and for how to apply: http://openwall.info/wiki/HPC/Village#Who-is-eligible We're happy to share these resources with other HPC hobbyists and code optimization geeks out there.
