Introduction to Supercomputing on Eos

This short course provides an introduction to using the IBM iDataplex Cluster ("EOS HPC Cluster"). We will use live demonstrations of interactive and batch sessions with the system. The short-course covers material relevant to users who either (a) run existing scientific code or (b) would like to develop their own code. It focuses, among others, on the following topics:

Day 1

Days 2

Note: During class sessions many aspects of the material will be illustrated live via a login to Eos. Attendees are welcome to follow these parts with their own laptops. They will need to have VPN for wireless connections setup on their laptop. Relevant details on this can be found at:

The material of this short-course uses Eos's User Guide as a reference and it will rely on this presentation to introduce some basic HPC concepts and Eos cluster configuration.

You are encouraged to contact the SC helpdesk at "" with any questions regarding EOS.
