SARA and BiG Grid host HPC cloud day

BiG Grid, the Dutch National Grid Initiative, and SARA will host a special High Performance Cloud Computing Day, next Tuesday 4 October at the Science Park Amsterdam Conference Hall.

The event has a packed programme with talks and demonstrations of scientific cloud usage and it will finish with the official inauguration of the new national HPC cloud infrastructure.

Registration for the HPC cloud day is free and it is still open.

The demonstrations will be presented by scientists, who will share their HPC and cloud experiences in the Life Sciences, Earth Sciences, Finance and Linguistics, amongst others.

The national HPC cloud will be an important step in the expansion and diversification of the BiG Grid infrastructure, who manages grid computing resources used by the CERN experiments, the LOFAR telescope and life science research.
