Training & drop-in help sessions for the Flux to Great Lakes HPC migration

As announced by ARC-TS, the Flux high-performance computing (HPC) cluster will be replaced in early 2019 with a new computing cluster named Great Lakes. Since there are a number of differences between Flux and the new Great Lakes environment, a test cluster named Beta has been created and is now available for researchers who would like to get started learning about the new environment.

In order to assist researchers, CAEN will be holding two training sessions in November for experienced Flux users who would like to get an early start learning the Great Lakes environment. Seating is limited, so we encourage users to register for a training session using the following links:

Three drop-­in help sessions have also been scheduled to assist researchers who are migrating their data and code to the new environment. There is no need to register for these drop-in sessions, which will be held at the following times and locations:

  • Tuesday, November 20 from 1:00 p.m. to 3:00 p.m. in Beyster 1620
  • Tuesday, December 4 from 3:00 p.m. to 5:00 p.m. in GFL 224
  • Wednesday, December 5 from 10:00 a.m. to 12:00 noon in EECS 4440

Anyone who has questions about these training sessions or the new Great Lakes environment, or would like to schedule an individual consultation, may email us at coe­-research­[email protected].
