For the configuration and management for high performance virtual machines on JuliaHub

High Performance Computing

One core pillar of JuliaHub is that the platform gives users access to different machines with memory and processing capabilities not available on your average laptop. This means that JuliaHub enables high-performance computing (HPC). HPC is about using supercomputers (virtual and in the cloud) to maximize the performance of a program or process. The Julia language’s distributed computing capabilities such as parallelism, multi-threading, and multi-processing, on JuliaHub allows anyone to perform complex calculations at extremely high speeds.

Enterprise and Teams subscriptions can get access to multiple types of machines:

  • 2 vCPUs, 16 GB
  • 4 vCPUs, 32 GB
  • 8 vCPUs, 64 GB
  • 16 vCPUs, 128 GB
  • 32 vCPUs, 256 GB
  • V100vGPU, 8 vCPUs, 61 GB (NVIDIA Tensor Core is the most advanced data center GPU ever built to accelerate AI)

Setting a Time Limit with CloudStation

When you start a job, you can set a limit to the amount of time (by hours) that this job will be active. Once the time limit is hit, the job will stop and spin down the application or product you are using. The max limit is 36 hours for the standard subscription, but higher tiers can be set with unlimited time. Admins can also set limits to users on their instance of JuliaHub.
