Introduction to Cloud Computing for Research

November 17, 2020
10:00 AM - 12:00 PM
This is part one of a two part workshop series about how the cloud can be leveraged to accelerate your research at Columbia. This workshop includes an introduction to the cloud and foundational concepts around cloud computing. Cloud computing is an ever growing and evolving set of tools and services that can empower researchers to quickly build resources to store, manage, and analyze data. In this first workshop session, you will learn: - What is the cloud? - What are advantages and disadvantages of using the cloud for research? - What cloud resources are available to me? - How do I set up compute, storage, and billing resources? The second workshop, entitled High Performance Computing on Google Cloud Platform, will focus on practical step-by-step tutorials on leveraging cloud resources for popular workflows. Zoom details and workshop materials will be sent to attendees before the workshop by email.
