Will Mayers, Alces Flight
With the advent of cloud HPC the possibilities of developing portable workloads are more real than ever. This breakout session is focused on building a portable cloud HPC cluster using the Alces Flight toolsets. Currently available on AWS, Google and Azure we will work through the basics of constructing and launching a cloud HPC cluster including adding job scheduler, applications, and more. This workshop is focused entirely on free subscription and open source. Those wishing to participate need a laptop with access to internet connection. No cloud platform account is required to be set in advance, however, instructions on how to set-up Alces Flight using a personal account post-session will be provided.
