21 February 2019
9:30am - 11:00am
Event cost: Free
Thursday 21st February 2019,   9:30am – 11:00am AWST
Please join us for our Webinar Session (90 minutes) :
  • Brief introduction to containers
  • Overview of container options at Pawsey
  • Example workflows and benchmarks using containers (hands-on)
Who should attend?

Once the domain of enterprise and corporations, containers have emerged as a viable option for many workflows in the HPC space. Over the past year, Pawsey staff have been investigating and experimenting with different container solutions.  In this seminar we’ll discuss some preliminary findings, lessons learned, benchmarks, and a roadmap for how we envision containers being used at Pawsey.  We’ll also show some live demos of containers in action.

This webinar should be of particular interest to the following research areas and users:

  • Bioinformatics & Medical Researchers
  • R users
  • Python users
  • Radio Astronomy
  • Machine Learning
  • OpenFOAM users
  • Nimbus & Cloud Computing


For the full experience of how to create, use and manage containers we encourage registrants to install Docker and Docker Compose (https://www.docker.com) on their own workstations/laptops and setup an account on NVIDIA-GPU cloud (https://ngc.nvidia.com). Zeus cluster training accounts will be available for the duration of the course.

Please note registrations close at 4pm AWST on Tuesday 19th February 2019.
