Purdue hosting workshop on Jetstream cloud resource for science and engineering Aug. 17

August 17, 2016  10:00am – 11:30am
LWSN 1142

Purdue will host a workshop on Jetstream, a National Science Foundation cloud resource for science and engineering research, from 10-11:30 a.m. Wednesday, Aug. 17, in the Lawson Computer Science Building, Room 1142.

The session is open to faculty, staff and students interested learning more about Jetstream and what it can offer, including easier access to national high-performance computing systems.

The event will include a presentation on Jetstream, show Jetstream in use, and follow with a question-and-answer session.

Jetstream, developed at Indiana University, is part of the NSF’s Extreme Science and Engineering Discovery Environment (XSEDE). One goal in implementing Jetstream is to increase the disciplinary diversity of XSEDE users and to reach non-traditional users with high-performance computing needs, among other things by allowing researchers to create virtual machines on remote resources that have the same look and feel as their workstations or home computers.

Jetstream developers want Purdue engineering researchers in particular to try the resource, including the ability to create customized workflows that may be shared with other Jetstream users.

The workshop is sponsored by ITaP Research Computing, Indiana University and XSEDE. For more information, email rcac-help@purdue.edu.
