The Scientific Computing team is now offering Intro and Intermediate courses to familiarize researchers with both the Linux OS and how to incorporate this knowledge to utilize the ERISOne Linux Cluster. ERISOne is a computing cluster used for data processing and analysis available as a shared resource to all researchers at no cost. This includes basic storage quota, shared computational resources and assistance from the ERIS support teams. Each hands-on course has limited space, and registration is required.
