[Training] The University of Melbourne - Introduction to HPC and Cloud Computing - Monday 11th & 18th April & Monday 2nd May 2016
This workshop is being taught by Martin Paulo and Lev Lafayette, from Research Platform Services.
This is a 1 Day Worshop running from 10am - 3pm with a 1 hour lunch break from 12 noon - 1pm.
Dates available are Monday 11th & 18th April & Monday 2nd May
About the Workshop:
High performance computing and cloud computing represent two different strategies to deal with the problem of processing large datasets. In this introductory course both approaches are examined with plenty of hands-on examples to gain familiarity including an introduction to the Linux command line in this environment, provisioning a cloud instance, submitting an HPC jobs for batch processing, and storage options for your data and results.
This course will make use of the NeCTAR research cloud, and the University's HPC system, Edward, and the HPC/Cloud hybrid Spartan.
Researchers will need to bring a laptop. MS-Windows users will need to have Putty (http://putty.org) installed.

A little bit about us......
We are researchers, training researchers! We get you! and would like to embrace you into our Community. Please feel free to swing by our new space called "Co - Lab", located in Room G07 of Old Quad, for a cup of tea and a chat. You are welcome anytime and we would love to see you there!
Research Platforms provides, builds and maintains ICT infrastructure for researchers, in particular cloud compute infrastructure and data storage infrastructure. Enabling data-driven research and the effective use of IT is at the centre of everything we do. We service more than 3,000 researchers from all disciplines across Parkville, within Victoria, and nationally.We work closely with key research support units including Faculty IT teams, the Melbourne eResearch Group, the Library, and other Infrastructure Services departments.
As well as providing underlying infrastructure services, we also work with researchers to provide a range of training, engagement and community building activities aimed at both maximising usage of the facilities, and maximising the value researchers get from them. By building community infrastructure in this way, we connect researchers with each other, with the supplied infrastructure, and with related infrastructure and services such as NCI, Pawsey, VLSCI, etc.
