Webinar: Research Computing Roundtable – Turnkey HPC: What is HPC?

It wasn’t long ago when HPC meant something very specific, tightly coupled, highly scalable, parallel workloads and the systems needed to support these workloads. It is the same today? What are we seeing in terms of trends of HPC and what we used to call “the long tail” of computational science. How does the definition of HPC reflect the infrastructure of how we build these systems like GPUs, Infiniband, parallelization, FPGAs, and architectures, and workload managers?

Using Cloud-init with CIQ’s Rocky Linux

In the first post of this series, we showed how to create a Rocky Linux 8.5 virtual machine from CIQ’s Rocky Linux 8.5 image using Microsoft Azure’s web portal. This is the quickest way to get a running virtual machine since no software need be installed locally and the portal can be used to create (or name) key material, e.g. a .pem file. You get convenience and speed to an outcome, but you sacrifice repeatability and customization. In the second post of this series, we addressed repeatability not by creating new virtual machines from the portal, but – wait for it! – from the command line. This required installing some client side software, specifically the Azure CLI toolkit, but the installation and configuration can be done in less than an hour and is done once and for all as was shown in the previous article.
