Come learn about the HiPerGator computer cluster and how you can leverage this computational resource for your research.
HiPerGator, the UF Supercomputer for Research, provides researchers access to 22,000 cores of compute capacity, 2.1 PB of storage and high-speed networking. Any UF faculty can use 8-cores at no cost, and investment in additional resources is subsidized by the University.
HiPerGator is capable of running almost any Linux command-line application. The list of installed applications continues to grow based on user requests and includes statistical packages like R and SAS, simulation packages to model events from climate change to molecular dynamics, and a wide range of bioinformatics applications. Users of HiPerGator are from all UF colleges and have a wide diversity of research.
The workshop will provide an overview of:
- Research Computing
- HPC resources
- how to get started using HiPerGator
This workshop is free and open to all UF faculty, staff and students. Please email firstname.lastname@example.org to register, and we hope see you there!
