Second GPU Cloudburst Experiment Yields New Findings

Researchers at the San Diego Supercomputer Center (SDSC) and the Wisconsin IceCube Particle Astrophysics Center (WIPAC) have conducted a second experimentt marshalled globally available-for-sale GPUs (graphics processing units), proving it is possible to elastically burst to very large scales of GPUs using the cloud, even in this pre-exascale era of computing.
