Florida State University Open Stack

  1. 1. Rearch Computing Center: Sky – FSU’s Virtual Cluster November 20, 2013 Dell Panel SC13, Denver Colorado
  2. 2. Florida State University §  Public University located in Tallahassee, Florida §  15 colleges, 39 centers/facilities/institutions, medical programs, and more than 300 programs §  Home to 7,000 faculty and staff serving over 40,000 students, ~30,00 of whom are undergraduates §  Home to National High Magnetic Field Laboratory
  3. 3. Research Computing Center §  §  §  §  §  §  High Performance Computing (HPC) Advanced Networks §  Distributed Memory (MPI framework) §  Shared Memory (OpenMP framework) HTC High Throughput Computing (HTC) Diverse storage requirements DB 2° Web portals and scientific databases 1° HPC and storage storage Visualization (Vis) and Interactive Web Computing Vis and Advanced Research Networks SMP interactive §  To support workflows and instrumentation
  4. 4. Research Computing Center Services (rcc.fsu.edu) High Performance Computing §  (8,000 Plus cores) High Throughput Computing §  Condor Cluster (Over 1,200 cores) Interactive Computing & Visualization §  Spear Cluster (296 CPU cores; 7,168 gpGPU cores) Virtual Machines §  SKY system (Capacity for 90 VMs) §  Cloud-based system based on OpenStack Data Storage §  HPC storage (Panasas) §  Interactive storage (Lustre) §  Second tier storage §  Backup §  Local and regional data sharing §  Storage for cloud-based systems Consulting and Planning
  5. 5. What is “SKY”
  6. 6. Why Would You Use “SKY”? §  Need root access on a system 6 §  §  §  Evaluate new software Run software not supported by the RCC Run apps on Microsoft Windows platform §  Building a science portal §  §  A web interface to your RCC data or RCC cycles A webs to share your data and results §  Computing resources, but not HPC or HTC §  Many projects need computing, just not on a large-scale (e.g., dedicated matlab instance)
  7. 7. What “SKY” is NOT §  It is not for general web hosting §  Robust high-performance or highthroughput §  Available to all faculty and staff (buy-in only for now)
