Getting started on the high-throughput data processing platform

Vastly increasing data volumes and data complexity imply that researchers require novel solutions to large scale cluster computing. This workshop aims to provide an introduction and hands-on experience with our new solution to this problem: “a new and versatile platform for high-throughput data processing”. The objective of the workshop is to distinguish the different functionalities of the platform, to provide information on applying for access, and to give participants hands-on experience with basic job processing, software distribution and portability, using internal and external storage systems, and how to collaborate on data analysis within a project. Participants will acquire first hand experience with the flexibility, interactivity and interoperability offered by the platform.

Who: Anyone who wants to start processing large data volumes (tens to hundreds of terabytes or even more)
