JADE (Tier 2 GPU cluster)

The Joint Academic Data Science Endeavour (JADE) is the largest GPU facility in the UK supporting world-leading research in machine learning.

The computational hub harnesses the capabilities of the NVIDIA DGX-1 Deep Learning System and comprise of 22 servers, each containing 8 of the newest NVIDIA Tesla V100 GPUs linked by NVIDIA’s NV link interconnect technology. The new JADE facility aims to address the gap between university systems and access to national HPC services.

The RSE group director (Paul Richmond) is a co-investigator in the EPSRC Tier 2 JADE system. As such members of the University of Sheffield are able to access this resource for free (for use with deep learning research).
