Cloud computing has become a very popular paradigm in computing in general and increasingly in the more demanding field of scientific computing. The RCUK Cloud Working Group has over the last 2 years initiated a series of community events and discussions to help researchers access and exploit cloud computing for their work. One early realisation is the need for practical advice as to how build an application that can be deployed across multiple clouds.
As part of the RCUK Cloud Working Group's series of community events that has been organised over the last two years, EMBL-EBI are pleased to offer an open workshop and training session 'ResOps: Delivering Science Across Clouds'. The event will take place on Monday 3rd July 2017. The day will provide some basic domain neutral practical experience on working with clouds from the work EMBL-EBI has been doing over the last year.
Attendees should be comfortable with technical scientific computing concepts and operating in and administering a linux environment (i.e. ssh, shell scripts, etc) and will learn about using DevOps technologies (e.g. Ansible, Terraform, Puppet, Docker) to deploy onto OpenStack.
