The 2nd de.NBI Cloud User Meeting is an upcoming 3-day event (03.09.2018-05.09.2018) in Heidelberg for people interested in Bioinformatics, Cloud Computing or Big Data. Due to the diversity of approaches that arise in this exciting and rapidly evolving cloud computing technology niche, this meeting should help to exchange ideas and approaches in the growing de.NBI Cloud community. We aim to advantage our attendees, from beginner to expert, with comprehensive understanding of the very broad application and benefit of the de.NBI Cloud. This event is your chance of meeting users, developers and administrators using the de.NBI Cloud. We feature topics from introduction or use case talks to introduce different technologies (OpenStack, Docker, Kubernetes, Nextflow, ….) to tutorials and workshops that will help understand how to actually apply the technology in your research.

    Combining Workflows, Tools and Data Management - GCB 2019 https://tess.elixir-europe.org/events/combining-workflows-tools-and-data-management-gcb-2019 Educators: Björn Grüning (RBC), Wolfgang Müller (de.NBI-SysBio) Date: 16.09.2019 Location: Marsilius-Arkaden Turm West, Room K13 Im Neuenheimer Feld **6.130.3** 69120 Heidelberg Germany Contents: There is a huge call towards FAIR data. However, what is *FAIR*? Many of us know how that FAIR means Findable, Accessible, Interoperable, Reusable. However the questions "How do I achieve FAIR?" and "How FAIR is FAIR enough?" are still open to debate. A completely different discussion is: How do I approach making my data FAIR? Making data FAIR can be tedious, manual work. Within this workshop we will demonstrate another approach, i.e. using the workflow system Galaxy, as well as Jupyter Notebooks to extract, enrich, process, and finally upload data into the FAIRDOMHub. This is built around the example use case of building an age estimator for humans from RNA data. On the way, we will give reference to the software and services we provide and the type of advice that we can give.

  • Getting started with the de.NBI Cloud - GCB 2019

    16 September 2019

    Heidelberg, Germany

    Getting started with the de.NBI Cloud - GCB 2019 https://tess.elixir-europe.org/events/getting-started-with-the-de-nbi-cloud-gcb-2019 Educators: Alexander Sczyrba, Peter Belmann, Sebastian Jünemann, Jan Krüger, Alex Walender (BiGi) Location: Heidelberg GCB Date: 16th September Content: The need for high-throughput data analysis has grown tremendously since the introduction of next-generation sequencing (NGS) platforms. The massive amount of data produced creates a new class of resource barriers to be overcome including limited bandwidth, storage volume and compute power. Small research labs can hardly cope with the data generated. A solution to the mere resource problem are cloud computing environments as virtually unlimited and flexible resources. The de.NBI Cloud is a full academic cloud federation, providing compute and storage re-sources free of charge for academic users. It provides a powerful IT infrastructure in combination with flexible bioinformatics workflows and analysis tools to the life science community in Germany. The de.NBI Cloud offers reliable IT security concepts and user access rules to en-sure secure data access and storage. It closes the gap of missing computational resources for life science researchers in Germany. The de.NBI Cloud project started in 2016 as collaboration between the universities of Bielefeld, Freiburg, Gießen, Heidelberg and Tübingen. The close cooperation with the ELIXIR cloud ensures the connectivity and sustainability in the international context. The de.NBI Cloud operates the major service levels: • Infrastructure as a Service (IaaS) suited for experienced power users that want full control over the compute environment; plain access to virtualized infrastructure • Platform as a Service (PaaS) suited for experienced users who utilize fully configured infrastructure for the deployment of custom workflows • Software as a Service (SaaS) suited for users without cloud experience who can use virtual machines (VMs) of pre-configured, state-of-the-art analysis tools and pipelines Cloud computing requires initial efforts and skills to port existing workflows to these new mod-els. The same holds true for emerging programming models. Cloud environments can be difficult to use by scientists with little system administration and programming skills. Challenges exist in managing cloud environments as there is a lack of tools which simplify accessing and using these environments and helping bootstrap users by providing basic software stacks. Keywords: OpenStack, Cloud Computing, virtual machines (VMs) Tools: OpenStack, BiBiGrid Prerequisites: The participants should bring their own laptop computers. The goal of the tutorial is to provide a fundamental introduction to the underlying OpenStack infrastructure. Target audience are bioinformaticians or experienced computational data analysts who would like to utilize scalable and flexible cloud resources for their research. Participants will learn how to setup a cloud project and work with virtual instances, and how to efficiently utilize cloud computing resources. We will also address networking and security issues, demonstrate how to deploy bioinformatics tools in the cloud, and how to set up a customized compute cluster in a cloud environment using BiBiGrid. All topics will be covered by short talks and practical hands-on sessions. 2019-09-16 09:00:00 UTC 2019-09-16 17:00:00 UTC de.NBI Heidelberg, Heidelberg, Germany Heidelberg Heidelberg Karlsruhe Germany [] [] [] meetings_and_conferences [] []
