  1. Faculty Technology Workshop October 4, 2011 Arellano Theater

  2. Introduction to Workshop Tony Dalrymple Mike McCarty Scott Zeger

  3. Research Computing Mark Robbins Physics and Astronomy

  4. Homewood High Performance Cluster (HHPC) Goals: Provide resources for large computational and data intensive projects on Homewood Campus – enable faculty to do more by pooling resources Centralize resources to improve efficiency→ special purpose air conditioned rooms and systems administration Increase competitiveness for new grants and faculty Info: http://www.idies.jhu.edu/hpc.aspx or https://hhpc.idies.jhu.edu/wiki/index.php/Main_Page Management committee (appointed by Deans): Burns, Dalrymple, Falk, Garcia-Moreno, Haines, Mittal, Robbins

  5. Homewood High Performance Cluster (HHPC) Partnership between faculty and Deans • Faculty: Purchase standardized compute nodesPay node fee to cover average rack/power/cable costsAllow Deans to allocate 10% of compute powerMinimum buy-in 8 nodes, < 1 user per node • Deans: Purchase head nodes and infiniband switchSystems administrator who provides basic service - operating system, compilers, queuing software 10% Deans’ share available to Homewood faculty, particularly for temporary spikes in compute needs, initial phase of new computational initiatives, new hires, users “kicking the tires” before buying in

  10. Shared Computing Clusters, Clouds, and REDCap Theresa Caruso, IT

  11. Shared Compute Cluster The Phoenix Project • What is it? • Specialized workload management system for compute-intensive jobs • Includes job queuing, scheduling policy, priority, resource management, match-making • Serial or Parallel jobs run simultaneously • Efficiently harness idle compute power into single usable resource pool A Shared Compute Cluster Midrange Technical Support Team

  12. Infrastructure • What components make up the SCC? • Management Nodes • 2 x HP Proliant DL380 G4 (Intel) • Compute Nodes • 14 x HP Proliant DL 380 G4 (Intel) • 6 x HP Proliant DL 385 (AMD) • Storage • Sun Storedge 6920 SAN (8TB Raw) • 2 x 500GB volumes shared via NFS • RedHat 5.6 64-bit & Condor 7.6.1 • Theoretical Benchmarks? • MIPS = 316200 GFLOPS = 77.2 Midrange Technical Support Team

  13. Cloud & Virtualization Services • Evolution from virtual infrastructure and shared storage to a full service private cloud • Working with researchers and distributed IT groups to increase service levels and accessibility of IT@JH computing services • Working with Educause, Internet2 and like-minded insitutions to build a foundation for community cloud solutions • Working with industry vendors to reduce complexity & cost while increasing maturity level & adoption of innovative technologies

  14. Johns Hopkins Cloud Offerings

  15. Storage Infrastructure

  16. The Johns Hopkins Biostatistics Center (JHBC) offers REDCap (Research Electronic Data Capture) a secure web-based application that supports data capture and management for research studies. We offer training, support and development services to support your REDCap project from start to finish. • Advantages of using REDCap for your research studies: • Secure • Easy to use • Fast • Robust • Commitment to quality • Flexible • Data entry • Data export • REDCap is supported by the REDCap Consortium which is comprised of 273 active institutional partners from CTSA, GCRC, RCMI and other institutions. It is currently in production use or development build-status for more than 22,130 studies with over 31,350 end-usersspanning numerous research focus areas across the consortium. The REDCapsoftware is primarily developed at Vanderbilt University and is provided free of charge to institutional consortium members. JHU became a consortium member in April 2009 through the efforts of JHBC.
