AWS High Performance Computing and Spot Instances Immersion Day

October 11, 2019 | Houston, Texas

Join Flux7 and AWS in Houston, Texas

AWS provides the most elastic and scalable cloud infrastructure to run your High Performance Computing (HPC) applications. With virtually unlimited capacity, engineers, researchers, and HPC system owners can innovate beyond the limitations of on-premises HPC infrastructure. These workloads span the traditional HPC applications, like seismic imaging, reservoir simulation, computer aided engineering, computational chemistry, financial risk modeling, as well as emerging applications, like machine learning, deep learning.


This one-day private-invitation technical workshop is designed to provide hands-on training in AWS HPC services including but not limited Batch, Parallel Cluster, Elastic Fabric Adapter (EFA), FSX for Lustre etc. In this introductory session, through a mix of classroom training and hands-on labs led by AWS and Flux7 Solutions Architects, you will learn about AWS HPC services as well as best practices and select industry workloads.


This is a hands-on workshop, so please bring your laptop to participate in the lab exercises.
