How to use Accelerated Computing in EGI Federated Cloud

Friday, November 27, 2020 - 10:00 to 11:00

Using GPUs to accelerate computation is demanded by many user communities, especially for applications related to image processing, machine learning and so on. 

Accessing federated clouds in EGI with VMOps Dashboard

Wednesday, November 25, 2020 - 14:00 to 15:00

The VMOps dashboard provides users with a set of graphical interfaces to high-level services, in order to manage Virtual Machines and Virtualized Appliances on federated cloud infrastructures, particularly on the EGI Federated Cloud and community-specific cloud federations.

The EGI Federated Cloud brings together resources from IaaS providers, built around open standards, focusing on the requirements of the scientific community. Rising above the challenge of bringing together distributed platforms, it features a unified authentication and authorization mechanism, a shared image catalogue, centralized monitoring and accounting, and, through the VMOps dashboard, a centralized way of deploying, managing, and accessing VMs and resources. Users are provided at a glance with an overview of the cloud with respect to provider availability based on their current status, and a 4-step wizard to deploy topologies based on the VM images and the VOs each provider supports, thus significantly reducing the burden of searching for the appropriate resources.

Chipster - a user-friendly bioinformatics software for analyzing high-throughput data

Friday, November 20, 2020 - 14:00 to 15:00

Chipster is a user-friendly bioinformatics software for analyzing high-throughput data such as RNA-seq and single cell RNA-seq. Chipster provides an easy to use web interface for over 450 analysis tools and a large collection of reference genomes. Chipster allows users to visualize data interactively, and it keeps track of the analysis steps taken. This provenance tracking combined with an easy way to share analysis sessions with other users allows researchers to collaborate efficiently. 

Chipster was developed by CSC – IT Center for Science which also runs a national Chipster server in Finland. The Chipster code base is freely available and many institutes around the world have set up their own Chipster servers. EGI operates a Chipster server which is available for the whole scientific community.

EGI Operations and responsibilities of an NGI

Thursday, October 29, 2020 - 10:00 to 11:00

This webinar will give an overview of tried and tested approaches to federated operations, both at the level of the infrastructure as well as at the national level.

DIRAC services for EGI users

Friday, October 23, 2020 - 15:00 to 16:00

DIRAC is a complete framework for building distributed computing systems of any level of complexity. Initially developed for the LHCb High Energy Physics experiment at the LHC collider at CERN, the framework was generalized for the use by multiple scientific communities in various domains. Services based on the DIRAC software are offered by several grid infrastructure projects such as France-Grilles or GridPP/UK. Since 2014, the DIRAC services have also been provided for the EGI users. 

CernVM-FS for Containers

Thursday, October 15, 2020 - 15:00 to 16:00

Delivering complex software stacks across a worldwide distributed system is a challenge in high-throughput scientific computing. The global-scale virtual file system CernVM-FS distributes more than a billion software binaries to hundreds of thousands of machines around the world.

The Fundamentals of Growth Marketing

Wednesday, October 7, 2020 - 15:00 to 16:00

Building products isn’t enough. Marketing channels are saturated. Rapid Experimentation and Growth Marketing skills help you beat the competition and keep growing!

Growth comes from a mix of behavioural psychology, coding, creative marketing and data analysis. 

Having spent the last couple of years building, coaching and training regiments of growth teams and growth marketers, in this talk we’ll run you through some of the latest stories, learnings and tricks we’ve learned along the way.
