Atte Sillanpää, Shubham Kapoor + other specialists from CSC
The CSC computing environment offers Sisu and Taito supercomputers (with a large selection of scientific software preinstalled in the environment), cPouta IaaS cloud services for everyday research usecases & ePouta IaaS cloud service for sensitive data processing use cases. CSC's computing environments are complemented with GPUs capacity & local SSDs providing leverage for intensive data processing workloads. In this workshop we explain how to use CSC's computing environments and its PetaByte scaled storage environments (parallel file system, node local discs, tape archive, object storage, SSD, burst buffers, etc.). The presentation will also feature getting access and account management, logging into CSC's supercomputing environment (ssh, NoMachine), using the module system (initialising applications), interactive usage, submitting and monitoring batch jobs, estimating batch job requirements, programming environment for compiling your own applications, setting up virtual resources in CSC's cloud environment, building up your application stack in cloud environments etc. The event contains presentations and demos and naturally the possibility to ask questions.
