HPCSYSPROS20 – Introduction
TimeFriday, 13 November 202010am - 10:05am EDT
DescriptionThe complexity of high-performance computing (HPC) systems necessitates advanced techniques in system administration, configuration and engineering and (by proxy) staff who are well-versed on the best practices in this field. HPC systems professionals include system engineers, system administrators, network administrators, storage administrators and operations staff who face problems that are unique to high-performance computing systems. The ACM SIGHPC SYSPROS Virtual Chapter, the sponsor for this workshop, has been established to provide opportunities to develop and grow relationships among HPC systems administration practitioners and to act as a support resource for them.
This workshop is designed to share best practices for common HPC system deployment and maintenance, to provide a platform to discuss upcoming technologies and to present state of the practice techniques that increase performance and reliability of systems, and in turn increase researcher and analyst productivity.
