New and prospective users of Savio and other Berkeley Research Computing high performance computing (HPC) clusters (Cortex and Vector) are invited to attend an introductory training session on September 18, 2018. Topics will include a system overview and a review of basic cluster usage, such as logging in, accessing software, running jobs, and transferring files. Please RSVP here.
Are your MATLAB analyses outpacing your laptop? Scale up your computation with Berkeley Research Computing’s Savio high-performance computing cluster, and the MATLAB distributed computing server toolkit! Mathworks and BRC staff will be holding a one-day workshop on parallel computing with MATLAB and scaling to the Savio cluster, on August 15th from 9 AM - 12 PM
A geospatial class at the Digital Humanities at Berkeley Summer Institute (DHBSI) served as a high-visibility testing ground for the ÆoD virtual workstations provided by Berkeley Research Computing (BRC). The widely-used ArcGIS software for geospatial analysis only runs on Windows, leaving students with Macs in a difficult position. Last year, loaner laptops from the library were able to address this gap during the workshop. This year, Research IT was able to provide students with access to ArcGIS during and beyond the week of the workshop, via their own laptop.
