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.




Overview of HPC Gateway

  • HPC Gateway is an integrated web-based workplace dedicated to HPC applications and processes.
  • Intuitive usage, adaptable to own layout
  • Quick access to all functions, services and data files
  • Portable and system independent
  • Mobile device interface
  • Brings simplicity to overall HPC work management and collaboration

HPC Gateway benefits

  • Global server and network infrastructure is virtualised to provide an abstracted service-based interface to HPC resources
  • Homogenous execution model from wherever the user is located
  • Standardisation around optimised/expert application methods
  • Global dataflow and data movement
  • Easy on-boarding of own application methods and job interface
  • Self-service interface setup
