Wynton HPC Cluster Introductory Workshop – April 22, 2024

Are you a UCSF researcher with a big dataset to work with but your laptop’s RAM is too small? Want to learn about using high-performance computing resources at UCSF? The Data Science and Open Science team is offering an introductory workshop to Wynton HPC on April 22, from 1 – 2 p.m. PT via Zoom. The workshop introduces fundamental concepts and best practices for using Wynton HPC. Our student teaching assistants, Fred Jiang and Marlene Lin, will cover:

  • How to create a Wynton account
  • How to login/logout to different nodes
  • beginner UNIX commands that are useful in the command line environment

Participants do not need experience with UNIX-like environments or HPC systems. The workshop will be recorded and the recording will be shared with registrants.

What is Wynton HPC?

Wynton HPC is a free large, shared high-performance compute (HPC) cluster underlying UCSF’s Research Computing Capability. Funded and administered cooperatively by UCSF campus IT and key research groups, it is available to all UCSF researchers and consists of different profiles suited to various biomedical and health science computing needs.
