Clusters and computational frameworks in the NeCTAR cloud
Many NeCTAR Virtual Laboratory and eResearch Tool projects are working on deploying Clusters in the Cloud (such as CloudMan and StarCluster). Some are also investigating computational frameworks (such as Hadoop) in the cloud.
At NeCTAR's Software Projects Collaboration Workshop (Dec 2012) some projects expressed a desire to share knowledge about such cloud-based computational frameworks.
This workshop aims to kick-start a NeCTAR Interest Group for sharing knowledge about deploying and using clusters and computational frameworks in the NeCTAR cloud.
Software engineers, software architects and technical project managers deploying or using clusters or computational frameworks on the NeCTAR Research Cloud are encouraged to attend. NeCTAR funded projects working on clusters in the cloud are particularly encouraged to attend.
We'll run this workshop as an Unconference/ Open-space where participants will set the agenda and run sessions on the day. Please come along prepared to share examples of how you are building clusters and computational frameworks in the NeCTAR Cloud. As per BarCamp rules there will be NO SPECTATORS, ONLY PARTICIPANTS!
