Full course description
About This Training
Research Desktop (RED) is a graphical desktop service for users with accounts on the Carbonate research supercomputer at Indiana University. RED is designed for users who are unaccustomed to working in Unix-like command-line environments. RED helps reduce the learning curve for users with little or no command-line experience and, as a result, promotes broader use of IU's research cyberinfrastructure.
Length: 1-2 weeks
Audience: IU students, faculty, staff, and non-IU collaborators with IU guest account
This course will introduce the operation of IU High Performance Computing Systems and Research Desktop (RED) including the data storage option, sensitive data management, Research Desktop basic operation, file transmission and job execution. There are some practice questions that can help you to practice the Carbonate opreating skills.
