Event description

Description

The Australian research cloud (also known as Nectar) has provided free, extended computational capacity to Australian researchers. Instead of tying up your own machine, you can use a virtual machine in the cloud to run your analysis while you keep your own desktop or laptop computer free for other tasks. The research cloud also allows you to gain access to resources with computational capabilities much larger than those of a desktop or laptop computer.

This workshop will introduce you to the Australian research cloud and show you how to gain access to resources.

This is a an introductory workshop only. After attending, attendees should be able to

  • launch a virtual machine on the Australian research cloud
  • create public and private keys for use with their virtual machine
  • log in to their virtual machine

You need to bring your own laptop to work on during the workshop.

If you are bringing a Windows laptop, you will need to have already downloaded PuTTY and PuTTYgen. Get both executable files here and download them to your desktop. Mac users should be fine.

Got questions? Come early to the workshop. We can help you install PuTTY.

The workshop will be taught by Stephen Crawley and Hoylen Sue of the Queensland Cyber Infrastructire Foundation, with assistance from QCIF eResearch Analyst Jason D'Netto. QCIF runs QRIScloud, the Queensland branch of the Australian Research Cloud (Nectar cloud).
