Exchange with colleagues from Université de Strasbourg about HPC, basic infrastructures and bwLehrpool

Aug 25, 2019 10:43 PM

A part of the eScience deparment visited Strasburg in order to exchange ideas at the computer center/HPC center. The main talking points were current topics such as containerization, dealing with the parallel file system BeeGFS, the design of modern server rooms and specifically the use of bwLehrpool for flexible PC pools in teaching and for e-exams.

Exchange with colleagues from Université de Strasbourg about HPC, basic infrastructures and bwLehrpool

Presentation of the functionality of bwLehrpool directly from the resources at the computer center in Freiburg

The exchange with the Université de Strasbourg has already been in place for a while now and is part of the idea of the European campus EUCOR, as it fills the lower levels with life as well. For the party from Freiburg it was impressive to see how a modern computer center with powerful and economical server rooms is built for more than 100 racks. The cooling works with groundwater and in the winter, the heat is used to heat the neighboring building on campus.

Furthermore, there was a presentation on the current bwLehrpool systems for the colleagues in charge of PC pool operations there. One of our colleagues from the bwLehrpool team presented the different developments and the technologies behind them, including the different tools available for choosing VMs or the management tool for teachers.
