How to do Large Scale Data Research on a Slurm HPC Cluster with OmniSci

Presented by

Devika Kakkar, Geospatial Data Scientist, Harvard University & Ben Lewis, Geospatial Technology Manager, Harvard University

About this talk

Harvard’s Center for Geographic Analysis was established in 2006 to support research and teaching across all disciplines in the University as they relate to geospatial technology and methods. They recently launched an initiative that has made the OmniSci platform available to all researchers at Harvard, utilizing the university’s slurm HPC cluster. In this talk, Devika and Ben will share why OmniSci is relevant to their work, the kinds of challenges facing researchers in general, and some of the projects that are specifically benefitting from OmniSci at Harvard. They will also explain how they got OmniSci running within their slurm cluster, and share the scripts they’ve developed to make it possible for researchers to get an OmniSci instance, for large-scale research, with a few simple clicks.
