Overview

Steven Newhouse, Head of EMBL-EBI Technical Services cluster, will discuss Cloud versus HTC (High Throughput Computing) resources, what is the difference and when you should use which. What type and volume of resources are available and where? Should you apply as an individual or as part of an organisation? How should you discover and access the resource? What are the cost implications of the different options and what is BioExcel doing to help users access cloud and HTC resources.

This webinar is the second part of a 2-part series on compute resources. During the previous webinar on 8th March 2017 Lee Larcombe talked us through the benefits and challenges of local computing. If you missed it you can watch the recording http://bit.ly/2lceAbi.
