The computer resources centre of Upper Normandy (CRIHAN) operates the regional pole of numerical modeling. Its technical platform is made up of high performance computing machinery with a peak power of 50 TFlops and including 13 – dx360 M3 nodes including two NVIDIA Tesla M2050 GPU modules. Available software includes CUDA C/C++ 5.0 and 6.5 API, CUBLAS and CUFFT packages for GPU acceleration. The CRIHAN provides also support for innovative projects such as Deep in Normandy and offers training related to these activities. Our project relies on the experience and the know how of CRIHAN in the field of high performance computing.
