Workshop: Eighth International Workshop on Heterogeneous High-Performance Reconfigurable Computing (H2RC 2022)
Authors: Christian Plessl (Paderborn University, Germany)
Abstract: The AMD Heterogeneous Accelerated Computing Program (HACC) is an initiative by AMD to provide an infrastructure and exchange platform for studying FPGA acceleration for HPC and data center workloads. The Paderborn Center for Parallel Computing (PC2) was accepted into the HACC initiative in spring 2022, which now comprises five centers worldwide. I will give a brief overview of the HACC program and will highlight the new Alveo U280 partition of our Noctua 2 supercomputer, which is accessible through the HACC program, and provides a particularly flexible software and networking environment.
