In addition to the HPC resources that are already available, new training possibilities will be offered in 2021. Take part in the survey!

Azzurra, the Université Côte d'Azur HPC cluster funded by the UCAJEDI IDEX project via the MSI, is a computing platform hosted by INRIA Sophia Antipolis Méditerranée and a member of the OPAL project which federates the computing resources of Université Côte d'Azur.

To date, Azzurra has been operational for several months, and its role is twofold:

  • to provide any member of the UCAJEDI IDEX project with computing resources and support on technical issues to carry out academic projects, also in conjunction with industrial partners;
  • to offer advanced training courses for people experienced in developing.

The training cycle will begin in 2021 following the identification of your training needs via this survey. OpenMP, MPI, and Introduction to GPU are the three topics.
