Researchers: Get training on large-scale computing methods

The CWRU Information Technology Services (ITS) Research Computing and Cyberinfrastructure team will provide the campus community the opportunity to join in an Extreme Science and Engineering Discovery Environment (XSEDE) training event on Big Data.

This session, held Tuesday, April 5, from 11 a.m. to 5 p.m. in Kelvin Smith Library, Room 215, will involve a blend of lecture and hands-on exercises to begin working with Hadoop and Spark. Participants also will receive an introduction to the Pittsburgh Supercomputing Center’s Bridges computing resource.

Bridges is designed to support a variety of Big Data analysis methods extending beyond traditional computing clusters, incorporating database and web servers to drive gateways and workflows to support fusion, analytics, integration and data management.

​The session will involve a telepresence lecturer, as well as hands-on working time on an XSEDE computing resource.

Registration is required, and seats are limited. Register at (look for the Case Western Reserve University site registration link).

An account with XSEDE is required to register.
