Dell Technologies HPC Community Event
About the Event
Omnia is a new open-source cluster deployment toolkit that automates the stand-up and tear-down of software-defined, bare-metal HPC clusters for simulation, artificial intelligence, and data analytics using various server, storage, and network building blocks. We will introduce the Omnia project and Omnia's current capabilities, then walk through the bootstrapping of an Omnia deployment appliance and creation of a resource pool from which we stand-up and tear-down high-performance clusters running the Slurm job scheduler and the Kubernetes container orchestration engine. We will wrap-up with a feature roadmap and ways to get involved with the Omnia project.
