Expanse Webinar: Scientific Computing with Kubernetes

Presented on October 20th, 2022 by Igor Sfiligoi, SDSC

Kubernetes is a popular container orchestration system that has seen massive adoption in both industry and academic IT departments. Long available in the Clouds, it has recently also become the main interface for several deployed and upcoming large-scale scientific compute facilities. The aim of this webinar is to provide science users that currently rely on traditional batch systems, like SLURM and HTCondor, a solid foundation that will allow them to effectively use Kubernetes-managed resources. The main focus is enabling the porting of batch-oriented scientific workflows, but we will also cover additional Kubernetes concepts not typically present in batch systems that could potentially be useful for science users.
