• Copy-paste ready commands to set up SGE, PBS/TORQUE, or SLURM clusters

    October 18, 2019

    Local HPC clusters continue to play a vital role in scientific research. However, setting up those systems can be very painful. If you just want to play around with the different systems, spending several hours until you can submit your first job is a very bleak outlook. Therefore, I present copy-paste ready instructions for setting up SGE, PBS/TORQUE, or SLURM on a single machine, which will act as the master and a compute node at the same time. All guides are tested on Ubuntu 18.04, but should work with little modification on most recent Linux installations.

  • High-performance Computing with AWS Parallelcluster

    May 7, 2019

    AWS ParallelCluster is a toolkit for automating the process of building, configuring, and managing clusters of virtual machines on the Amazon Elastic Compute Cloud (EC2) cloud. These clusters can be used similar to traditional HPC clusters. This post contains a short performance analysis based on literature study and provides detailed instructions for getting started with your first cloud cluster.
