Berkeley Lab Projects Advance Running, Scheduling of Scientific Workflows on HPC Systems

December 4, 2017

Researchers are increasingly turning to high performance computing (HPC) systems to carry out scientific workflows, which are executed as a series of steps and programs to study complex problems. However, achieving this can require a number of time-consuming manual tasks by the user and doesn’t always make the most efficient use of the system. Recently, researchers at the Department of Energy’s (DOE) Lawrence Berkeley National Laboratory (Berkeley Lab) released publicly available software… Read More »
