Webinars

Fenix organises a series of webinars to introduce users and relative audiences to the Fenix Infrastructure as well as available services and resources.

The webinar video files are uploaded on this page and can also be found on the dedicated "Fenix Infrastructure Webinars" playlist on the Human Brain Project YouTube channel.

1st Fenix Research Infrastructure webinar: HPC and Cloud Infrastructure for Neuroscientists

This webinar offers an overview of ICEI/Fenix and introduces the services and available resources of the Fenix Infrastructure. It also provides information for interested users on how to get access and further details on how to use the data repositories that are available in ICEI. The presentation slides are available here.

2nd Fenix Research Infrastructure webinar: How to exploit ICEI scalable computing services

The goal of this webinar is to introduce participants to the Fenix Scalable Computing Services (SCC). It provides details on the ICEI infrastructure for SCC at the Swiss National Supercomputing Computing Centre (CSCS). Information on the available resources can be found at: https://fenix-ri.eu/infrastructure/resources/available-resources. The presentation slides are available here.

3rd Fenix Research Infrastructure webinar: Guidance on submitting applications

The goal of this webinar is to provide information on the available mechanisms to access the ICEI resources, and in particular: on when and how to submit a request for resources, the evaluation process, and the allocation rules. Relevant details can also be found here: https://fenix-ri.eu/access. The presentation slides are available here.

4th Fenix Research Infrastructure webinar: How to make best use of ICEI storage resources

ICEI offers two different classes of storage: Active and Archival Data Repositories. In this webinar we will outline the principles of the underlying architectures for both, demonstrate how to leverage them for scientific workflows, and summarise current best practices for achieving high performance. The presentation slides are available here.

5th Fenix Research Infrastructure webinar: How to use ICEI's Virtual Machines for deploying platform services

Fenix offers a service for deploying virtual machines (VMs) in a stable and controlled environment. This is offered by the different Fenix sites using the OpenStack platform. This webinar will give an introduction to VMs, and how this infrastructure is suitable for deploying platform services. An overview of the OpenStack Horizon web GUI will be presented, using the example of the Pollux VM service at CSCS. The presentation slides are available here.

6th Fenix Research Infrastructure webinar: Introduction to the JUSUF system at JSC

The JUSUF system at JSC is a hybrid high-performance compute cluster and cloud system that provides scalable and interactive compute services and virtual machine (VM) hosting capabilities. This webinar provides an overview of the hardware and software setup of the JUSUF cluster and cloud partitions and describes introductory-level usage scenarios. The presentation slides are available here.

7th Fenix Research Infrastructure webinar: Introduction to the ICEI resources at CEA

This webinar presents ICEI resources available at CEA: HPC resources, cloud resources, filesystems and object storage. It describes the setup of those systems (hardware and software), gives an overview of the user environment, and introduces how to use them. The presentation slides are available here.
