Jupyter Notebooks and User-Friendly HPC Access
TimeSunday, November 11th10:47am - 11:04am
DescriptionHigh performance computing systems can be hard to use, and can require advanced knowledge of the command line, resource managers, and other details that scientists without a systems administration background may find distracting. In this project, we describe our extensible gateway of tools which has allowed students and researchers with minimal HPC backgrounds to use our system with virtually no training. Performance measurements show that our gateway incurs marginal overhead. With only a small performance cost, the gateway provides an easily accessible HPC environment. This environment is specially tailored for education. We provide a means for teachers to easily provide students access to information and assignments, and give students their own personal HPC sandbox, including access to a fully-functional, personalized Jupyter Notebook server.
