Introduction to the Red Raider Cluster

The new RedRaider cluster is available now for early test access and will become available for all HPCC users following a maintenance shutdown January 4-14, 2021 to merge with the previous cluster components. To prepare users for the transition from Quanah and Ivy, the HPCC is offering an Advanced User Training. The training provides information on using the new Red Raider cluster, submitting jobs to the new workload manager Slurm, and building and running applications for the new CPU AMD and GPU Nvidia architectures. To make the best use of this user training, participants should already have requested and received HPCC access for their eRaider account, and installed and configured an SSH client on their computer for remote access.
