Training Programme

This page describes a training programme for different roles working with the Fujitsu HPC Gateway:

  1. End-users running HPC workloads
  2. Editors creating and adapting the managed applications
  3. Administrators of the HPC Gateway installation, and also in-built teams and projects

Training is structured around several topics. Each topic refers to content provided in separate HPC Gateway reference wiki pages.


Screencast video tutorials around the features and capabilities of Fujitsu HPC Gateway are also being added in a separate page.
