UAB Kubernetes Computation Resources

  • 4 DGX A100 nodes
    • GPUs aren’t virtualized, but one DGX node can be split into 1/7th of a GPU
    • 8 A100s per DGX node * 7/7ths = 56/7ths of a GPU possible
    • Can be used for classes learning to use GPUs
  • Finding containers to use
    • K8s will search DockerHub and other container registries automagically.
    • Can add additional registries
