Training available to use Tandy Community Supercomputer
The OSU in Tulsa Office of Research will host training sessions for faculty, students and staff on use of the Tandy Community Supercomputer on Feb. 27 from noon to 1:30 p.m. in D-107 at the OSU Center for Health Sciences and March 13 from 9 a.m. to noon in Main Hall 2323. The Tandy Supercomputing Center, an initiative of the Oklahoma Innovation Institute and Tulsa Research Partners, offers researchers access to high performance computational capabilities in Tulsa.
The first session will offer a broad overview of supercomputing, the Tandy Supercomputing Center and its services. Attendees will learn basic concepts of applying high performance computing to their work and find out about computing resources across the state available to OSU in Tulsa researchers. The second session is a hands-on workshop to learn the basics of using the supercomputer system, like logging in, compiling code and submitting jobs. The class will also provide an introduction to parallelism and the storage hierarchy. Attendance in the first session is recommended but not required and seating is limited.
Significant experience in computing is not required for the sessions. However, some basic programming knowledge is assumed during training. Contact Terry Brown for more information or to register for the March 13 session.
