pyblosc 1.8.1-fosscuda-2019a-Python-3.7.2

Blosc ( is a high performance compressor optimized for binary data. It has been designed to transmit data to the processor cache faster than the traditional, non-compressed, direct memory fetch approach via a memcpy() OS call.

Accessing pyblosc 1.8.1-fosscuda-2019a-Python-3.7.2

To load the module for pyblosc 1.8.1-fosscuda-2019a-Python-3.7.2 please use this command on the BEAR systems (BlueBEAR, BEAR Cloud VMs, and CaStLeS VMs):

module load pyblosc/1.8.1-fosscuda-2019a-Python-3.7.2

There is a CPU version of this module: pyblosc 1.8.1-foss-2019a-Python-3.7.2

BEAR Apps Version



EL8-haswell (GPUs: NVIDIA P100)

The listed architectures consist of two part: OS-CPU.

  • BlueBEAR: The OS used on BlueBEAR is represented by EL and there are several different processor (CPU) types available on BlueBEAR. More information about the processor types on BlueBEAR is available on the BlueBEAR Job Submission page.
  • BEAR Cloud and CaStLeS VMs: These VMs can have one of two OSes. Those with access to a BEAR Cloud or CaStLeS VM should check that the listed architectures for an application include the OS of VM being used. The VMs, irrespective of OS, will use the haswell CPU type.
