Best Practices for HPC in the Cloud
Cloud and Distributed Computing
TimeSunday, 14 November 20218am - 5pm CST
DescriptionThe use of cloud computing technologies within HPC has grown considerably over the last few years. This tutorial will provide a solid foundation of skills to run common HPC workloads using cloud technologies as well as provide a deeper view into how to use cloud-native technologies (such as serverless) in HPC workflows.
The tutorial starts with a primer on modern cloud foundations and how they map to common HPC concepts. This includes a hands-on portion that allows attendees to set up their own cluster in the cloud and run a sample application. The rest of the tutorial provides progressively deeper dives through lectures and hands-on sessions for topics such as common HPC-on-cloud architectures, automation, containers and serverless technologies and how they can be used in HPC workflows.
Attendees will need a laptop and familiarity with the Linux command line for the hands-on parts of the tutorial.
