Orchestration: Heat Templates – Chameleon Cloud Webinar

May 12 @ 3:00 pm - 4:00 pm
Virtual

In previous webinars we saw how to create and run an experiment using Jupyter Notebooks and automate configuring an experiment in multiple servers inside a custom network using Ansible. This time, we will raise the bar once again and use a heat template to create the entire experiment -- reservation, servers, network, experiment -- without human intervention besides starting the build process. You will leave this webinar knowing what a heat template is, how to write one, and how to…

Automated Deployment – Chameleon Cloud Webinar

July 14 @ 3:00 pm - 4:00 pm
Virtual

Previous webinars have shown how to automate the orchestration of an experiment from allocating the resources to building the lab to running the experiment and tearing it all down using Heat Templates. Chameleon is a research platform in which experimenters can make on-demand or advanced reservations for resources. Some experiments require resources -- GPUs, FPGAs -- that are both scarce and popular so users must reserve them well in advance. Other experiments require large portions of the testbed and are…
