Bioinformatics Facility BioHPC Cloud Open House

G10 Biotech on Thursday March 23th 2017 from 2pm to 4pm.

Bioinformatics Facility is happy to announce an Open House showcasing our BioHPC Cloud, a flexible computing and storage solution for life sciences.

We will give a brief overview of the existing BioHPC Cloud services and infrastructure and we will introduce new services that have been just released.

2:00-2:15  Overview (Jaroslaw Pillardy)
A brief overview of the infrastructure and services available in BioHPC Cloud. There is a variety of hardware choices, 1PB of network storage and over 300 software titles installed.
2:15-2:30   Backups (Robert Bukowski)
We are happy to introduce backup service, now available to all BioHPC Cloud 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.
2:30-2:45   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).
2:45-3:00   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.
3:00-4:00   Poster session and discussion.
Time for informal discussion.

Snacks and refreshments will be provided, please RSVP below.
