IS&T RCS Tutorial - Introduction to BU's Shared Computing Cluster (Hands-on)

  • Starts: 3:00 pm on Wednesday, May 29, 2024
  • Ends: 5:00 pm on Wednesday, May 29, 2024
This tutorial will introduce Boston University’s Shared Computing Cluster (SCC) in Holyoke, MA. This Linux cluster has more than 23000 processors and over 9 petabytes of storage available for Research Computing by students and faculty on the Charles River and BUMC campuses. A very large number of software packages for programming, mathematics, data analysis, plotting, statistics, visualization, and domain-specific disciplines are available as well on the SCC. You will get a general overview of the SCC and the facility that houses it and then a hands-on introduction covering connecting to and using the SCC for new users. This tutorial will cover a few basic Linux commands but we strongly encourage people to also take our more extensive “Introduction to Linux” tutorial. There will also be ample time for questions of all types about the SCC. For those in the BU community interested in using a particular package on the SCC, after taking this tutorial we also recommend viewing one of our short videos on that package if one is available.
