Using WestGrid: Part 2
This two-hour online tutorial is a followup to Using WestGrid - Part 1, which focused on getting started with WestGrid and Compute Canada computing resources. Part 2 will focus on some of Compute Canada's other services, such as:
- ownCloud storage – 50Gb of shareable, Dropbox-like space available across multiple devices.
- Globus – Fast, secure, sharing and fire-and-forget file transfers.
- Cloud computing – Virtual-machine development space that includes an outward-facing IP address.
This will be an introductory level course with hands-on exercises and will include demonstrations of how to log in, set up your account, and perform basic functions to get started. Note: You must have a WestGrid account in order to participate. You do not have to attend Using WestGrid - Part 1 as a prerequisite, but it is strongly recommended.
