ASU Research Computing is hosting a free, hands-on XSEDE Big Data workshop on Wednesday, February 7, 2018, and Thursday, February 8, 2018. Faculty, staff and students who work in high-performance computing research are welcome to attend!

XSEDE Big Data Workshop
Wednesday, February 7–Thursday, February 8, 2018
9 a.m.–3 p.m.

Orchid House at the Brickyard (BYOH) Decision Theater, Tempe campus [map]
Register to attend by Monday, February 5, 2018

You will leave with a working knowledge of how to leverage Apache’s Hadoop or Spark frameworks to process and store extremely large data sets that could run on either XSEDE’s and/or ASU’s High-Performance Computing environments. This workshop is intended to give a hands-on introduction to Apache’s Hadoop, a Java-based programming framework that supports the processing and storage of extremely large datasets in distributed computing environments, and Apache’s Spark, an open-sourced cluster-computing framework. This event will be presented using the Wide Area Classroom (WAC) training platform.

XSEDE, the Extreme Science and Engineering Discovery Environment, is the most advanced, powerful and robust collection of integrated digital resources and services in the world. It is a single virtual system that scientists and researchers can use to interactively share computing resources, data and expertise. XSEDE integrates the resources and services, makes them easier to use and helps more people use them.
