UL HPC School - March 2015
The University of Luxembourg operates since 2007 a High Performance Computing platform which currently features a total of nodes (in practice, computing cores) for a cumulative computing power estimated at TFlops.
The total raw storage capacity shared within the clusters is currently estimated at TB (NFS + Lustre).
The UL HPC management team will offer instructions and practical sessions with the aim to cover the basic usage of the platform for newcomers, on the following topics:
- Accessing and interacting with the UL HPC infrastructure
- HPC challenges, especially as regards data and storage management
- HPC workflow management
- Software environment deployment
New members of the UL or HPC beginners should not miss this opportunity to learn about the efficient usage of the HPC platform.
March 13th, 2015, on the Kirchberg campus, in B13 (morning) and A02 (afternoon)
The sessions will take place at the Kirchberg Campus, in B13 and A02.
Important You are expected to bring your personal laptop for all sessions since there will be no workstation available on site.
All tutorials proposed as practical sessions are available on GitHub.
