UVA HPC CURSUS JUNE 2017 - STEP UP TO SUPERCOMPUTING

7. Data management

7. Data management

NEW WORKSHOP starting  from Jan 2017. 


Content :  Due to the arrival of new technologies to easily generate masses of data, research has shifted from a compute intensive research to data intensive research. Thus, data management has become a vital part of the research process.  In this course we will give you an overview of the services available for researchers in the Netherlands. Specifically, we will focus on SURFsara’s archive service, a service easily reachable from SURFsara’s compute infrastructure.

In the first part of the hands-on you will gather experience with graphical user interfaces that help you to move your data and you will learn about their limitations.
In the second part of the hands-on you will become familiar with data transfer protocols and their command line tools. Furthermore, we will show you tools to organise and package your data and how you can incorporate data movement and management into your workflows and computational pipelines.
