Modern compute clusters have become an important part of the IT infrastructure for research and development in many companies and institutions. The procurement, operation, and efficient usage of such parallel systems introduce new and complex requirements.

To address these issues, the High-Performance Computing Center Stuttgart (HLRS) will hold a vendor-independent workshop that provides an introduction to cluster systems and the particular challenges they raise. Topics covered will include the design of compute clusters, as well as details on hardware components, operating systems, file systems, and modes of operation, as well as some examples of software solutions. Furthermore, typical problems that cluster operators encounter will be discussed, along with strategies for solving them.

As Germany's first national supercomputing center, HLRS has operated compute clusters for many years, enabling simulation for a wide range of scientific and industrial applications. We maintain constant dialogue with users and hardware providers and have accumulated a large knowledge base in cluster computing.
