PDC Summer School/Introduction to High-Performance Computing

August 20, 2012 - August 31, 2012

You are invited to register for the summer school "Introduction to
High-Performance Computing" being held at PDC on the KTH main campus.
To register, and find out more about the school, visit the school Web
page at http://www.pdc.kth.se/education/summer-school/.

The PDC Summer School in High-Performance Computing is an annual
offering to researchers to improve on their skills in scientific
computing. The course is held for its seventeenth consecutive year at
KTH, Stockholm, Sweden.

During two intensive summer weeks at the KTH campus students will be
able to learn and improve their skills in writing efficient programs
for parallel scientific applications.

The course carries 7.5 ECTS (European Credit Transfer and Accumulation
System), where 1.5 ECTS credits are equivalent to one week's workload
of 40 hours. The student receives these credits on successful
completion of the post-course project. Participants are strongly
encouraged to bring their own problems or programs for discussion and
to possibly use as the basis of the post-course project. Participants
are provided with access to PDC's Lindgren (Cray XE6) system, the
fastest supercomputer in the Nordics. Industrial participation is
welcome. The number of seats for all participants is limited.

*Registration opens March 15 and closes June 1, 2012.*

A number of topics will be covered in overview lectures given by
international experts and in- depth technical lectures followed by
hands-on computer lab sessions. The course will consist of about 35
hours of lectures and 35 hours of computer lab sessions. Among the

Parallel Programming (MPI, OpenMP, GPU)
Modern Computer Architectures
Parallel Algorithms
Efficient Programming
Case Studies

Roughly half of the class time will be spent hands-on in the lab. The
lecturers and the PDC staff will assist in the computer labs. Students
who do not already have an account at PDC will receive one. These
accounts will stay active after the course so students may work on the
post-course project.

One Click, Universal Protection: Implementing Centralized Security Policies on Linux Systems

As Linux continues to play an ever increasing role in corporate data centers and institutions, ensuring the integrity and protection of these systems must be a priority. With 60% of the world's websites and an increasing share of organization's mission-critical workloads running on Linux, failing to stop malware and other advanced threats on Linux can increasingly impact an organization's reputation and bottom line.

Linux Backup and Recovery Webinar

Most companies incorporate backup procedures for critical data, which can be restored quickly if a loss occurs. However, fewer companies are prepared for catastrophic system failures, in which they lose all data, the entire operating system, applications, settings, patches and more, reducing their system(s) to “bare metal.” After all, before data can be restored to a system, there must be a system to restore it to.

In this one hour webinar, learn how to enhance your existing backup strategies for better disaster recovery preparedness using Storix System Backup Administrator (SBAdmin), a highly flexible bare-metal recovery solution for UNIX and Linux systems.
