SESSION: PARALLEL: Bootable Cluster CD

EVENT TYPE: Education

TIME: 2:00PM - 3:00PM

SESSION CHAIR: Skylar Thompson

Presenter(s):Skylar Thompson, Charlie Peck, Thomas Murphy, Daniel Ernst, Henry Neeman

ROOM:WSCC 611/612/613/614

The Bootable Cluster CD (BCCD) is a software platform designed to allow Computational and Data Enabled Science & Engineering (CDESE) and High Performance Computing (HPC) instruction to concentrate on education and not on the requisite computing infrastructure. Originally developed by Paul Gray at the University of Northern Iowa, the BCCD continues to be developed by those close to CDESE and HPC education. The BCCD is an open-source Knoppix-based live CD that provides many of the tools for teaching CDESE and HPC (e.g., GNU compiler suite, Intel compiler, multiple MPI implementations, CUDA, Java) that can be run on either a single system or on a network of computers that are automatically configured using custom networking tools to form an ad hoc temporary cluster. Prerequisite: "Introduction to MPI via Point-to-Point Communication" session or equivalent.
