Abstract | Full Text

The article highlights the issues of training personnel for work with high-performance computing systems (HPC), as well as of support of the software and information environment which is necessary for the efficient use of heterogeneous computing resources and the development of parallel and hybrid applications. The heterogeneous computing cluster HybriLIT, which is one of the components of the Multifunctional Information and Computing Complex of JINR, is used as the main platform for training and re-training specialists, as well as for training students, graduate students and young scientists. The HybriLIT cluster is a dynamic, actively developing structure, incorporating the most advanced HPC computing architectures (graphics accelerators, Intel Xeon Phi coprocessors), and also it has a developed software and information environment, which in turn, makes it possible to build educational programs on the up-to-date level, and enables the learners to master both modern computing platforms and modern IT technologies.
