TUTORIAL: Using Gordon, a Data-Intensive Supercomputer
    Monday July 16, 2012 1:00pm - 5:00pm @ Illinois, 5th floor

    ABSTRACT: The Appro Gordon Compute Cluster was put into production at the San Diego Supercomputer Center (SDSC) in early 2012. In addition to providing academic users with their earliest access to the Intel EM64T Xeon E5 (Sandy Bridge) processor, it contains a number of unique features that make it ideal for data-intensive applications. All current and potential Gordon users are invited to attend, but we especially encourage practitioners from domains that have not traditionally been major users of NSF compute resources (e.g., political science, linguistics, economics, finance, data analytics, and sociology) to participate. The tutorial covers the Gordon architecture, the types of applications that are ideally suited for the system, and how to run jobs and get the best performance on the system.
