Lunch

Brown Bag BoF: "HPC for the rest of us..." Are you operating a small to medium sized HPC Center? Interested in how others are managing resources with open source tools and low risk/low overhead hardware? Questions about academic service centers and cost recovery models? Or just want to talk shop with other center managers and admins?

Join a lunch-time chat, share stories from the trenches, ideate on innovative and interesting ways to manage resources, share experiences, or bring your own topics … we’re open to discussing anything HPC for the rest of us!
13:15-13:50   Best Practices: Linear Coherent Laser Source (LCLS-II): The Next Generation World-leading Free Electron Laser, its capabilities, challenging data transfer requirements, and progress to meeting them.

17:30-19:00   Twilight Tutorial: Containers
Docker Inc.
Christian Kniep

This tutorial provides a detailed overview of the components needed to run containerized applications and explores how distributed HPC applications can be tackled. We’ll explain the concept of Linux Containers and describe the bits and pieces participants will explore following step-by-step examples.

The workshop will introduce the predominant forms of orchestration in the industry; what problems they solve and how to approach the problem. Attendees will explore the benefits and drawbacks of orchestrators first hand with their own small exemplary stack deployments.

Finally the workshop will introduce how HPC and Big Data workloads can be tackled on-top of these service-oriented clusters.
