After the successful VSC users day in January 2014, this year’s users day takes place at the University of Antwerp on Monday November 30 (Campus Drie Eiken, building Q). The users committee has organized the day and has drawn up the programme. We have invited both an external and an internal speaker. Moreover, 4 workshops will be organized. These workshops will be repeated in the afternoon such that every participant is able to participate in two workshops.
- VSC for starters
Upscaling to HPC. We will present you some best practices, give advice when using HPC clusters and show some pros and cons when moving from desktop to HPC. Even more experienced researchers may be interested.
- Specialized Tier-2 infrastructure: shared memory
Shared memory: when distributing data is not/no longer an option. We will introduce you to the available shared memory infrastructure by means of some use cases.
- Big data
We present Hanythingondemand (hod), a solution for running Hadoop, Spark and other services on HPC clusters.
- Cloud and grid access
The availability of grid and cloud resources is not so well known in VSC. We will introduce you to the cloud environment, explain how it can be useful to you and show how you can gain access.
All information about the user day, including the program and travel instructions, is available on this web page.
