We will give a brief overview of the existing BioHPC Lab services and

||Overview (Jaroslaw Pillardy)
A brief overview of the infrastructure and services available in BioHPC Lab.
There is a variety of hardware choices, 1PB of network storage and over 300
software titles installed.
||Backups (Robert Bukowski)
We are happy to introduce backup service, now available to all BioHPC Lab
users. It can be configured and controlled using our website. You can back
up your home directories (or parts thereof) as well as data stored on hosted
servers. Browse and retrieve backed up files any time on login nodes. Backup
storage servers are located in Weill Hall, a location separated from our
main computing facility at Rhodes Hall.
||Computing and data management (Qi Sun)
There are variety of options available to access our computing solutions,
including purchasing computing hours, annually paid membership, or hosting a
dedicated server. We have equally large array of options available for
storing data. It is also possible to share data with external collaborators
(for both exporting and importing data).
||Docker (Jaroslaw Pillardy)
Advanced users often need to install applications just to test them, and
although we are happy to install software for you, it may not be practical
to do that for a brief test or evaluation. Docker allows users to install
and run applications in an isolated way that includes full administration
rights inside an isolated container. Docker containers also enable users to
run programs native to other Linux distributions without any need of porting
or modifying - like Ubuntu apps on RedHat/CentOS.
||Poster session and discussion.
Time for informal discussion.
Snacks and refreshments will be provided, please RSVP below.
