Next HPC training in Redmond is focusing on V2

Windows HPC Server 2008 (aka. "V2") comes with a boatload of new features. More than worth an in-depth training. This post is meant to inform you about a rare opportunity to learn about Windows HPC Server 2008 from a developer and an IT professional perspective. We use early bits for all the labs!

Tentative agenda:

Day 1: CCS Infrastructure for the IT-Pro

· Overview of CCS v2

· Administration: all-in-one monitoring, diagnostics, reporting

· Administration: template-based deployment and patching; application installation and fail-over (when available in beta code)

· Changes to network configuration, diagnostics, performance tuning

· Storage options


· Cluster deployment

· Infiniband configuration

· Operations and diagnostics

· Command-line operations with PowerShell

· Head node fail-over (once available)

Day 2: CCS Usage and Application Development

· The v2 scheduler: new, scalable architecture & features

· interoperability: WCF interface, XML profiles, v2 API

· development: tools for debugging/tracing, libraries, plinq


· Scheduling jobs using new features (e.g. partitions), including PowerShell scripting

· Developing a WCF component to interact with the cluster

· Developing CLR-managed MPI applications with
