Free XSEDE Big Data Workshop

Arizona State University Research Computing is hosting a free, 2-day Extreme Science and Engineering Discovery Environment (XSEDE) Big Data hands-on workshop for faculty members, staff and students May 1–2.

Attendees will leave with a working knowledge of how to leverage Apache’s Hadoop or Spark frameworks to process and store extremely large data sets that could run on either XSEDE’s and/or ASU’s high-performance computing environments.

About

XSEDE along with Arizona State University and the Pittsburgh Supercomputing Center are pleased to announce a 2-day, Big Data workshop. This workshop is intended to give a hands-on introduction to Apache’s Hadoop, a Java-based programming framework that supports the processing and storage of extremely large datasets in distributed computing environments, and Apache’s Spark, an open-sourced cluster-computing framework. This event will be presented using the Wide Area Classroom (WAC) training platform.

XSEDE, the Extreme Science and Engineering Discovery Environment, is the most advanced, powerful and robust collection of integrated digital resources and services in the world. It is a single virtual system that scientists and researchers can use to interactively share computing resources, data and expertise. XSEDE integrates the resources and services, makes them easier to use and helps more people use them.
