Introduction to Working on HPC Clusters

Using HPC systems like Bonna and Bender requires some basic understanding of the design and functionality of cluster architectures.

This course is intended for future users of the HPC clusters at the University of Bonn, who have no prior knowledge of working on HPC systems.

Basic knowledge of the Linux / Unix shell is needed.

This course will be conducted in English.
