This course is an applied systems course on the configuration and use of clusters (i.e., networked collections of compute servers) for computational science. As a platform, clusters are becoming more important in computing science, computational science, and industry. For example, clusters are used to handle the large amounts of data in bioinformatics, to simulate ocean currents and climate, and to calculate risks associated with complicated financial transactions.
The course will cover the hardware, software, and conceptual principles of cluster computing.
