Cluster Workshop

Enterprises & SME
Cluster Workshop


Nowadays, the IT infrastructure of many companies and institutions includes modern compute clusters. The procurement, operation and the efficient usage of such parallel systems introduces new and complex requirements.

To address these emerging requirements, the High Performance Computing Center of the University of Stuttgart (HLRS) offers a vendor-independent workshop. Topics span from the design of compute clusters to details on different hardware components, operating systems, file systems and modes of operation, touching on specific software solutions. Further, typical problems and strategies for their solution will be discussed.

HLRS has been running compute clusters for many years, providing compute resources for scientific and industrial simulations. HLRS is in constant dialogue with users and hardware providers and has accumulated a large knowledge base in cluster computing.
