Create a Training Cluster

AWS ParallelCluster Logo

AWS ParallelCluster is an AWS-supported, open source cluster management tool that makes it easy for you to deploy and manage High Performance Computing (HPC) clusters with a Slurm scheduler on AWS. ParallelCluster uses a simple (YAML) text file to model and provision all the resources needed for your HPC applications in an automated and secure manner. We’re going to use parallelcluster ui, which we installed in the Preparation section, to create a cluster.

We’ve broken the steps down to:

  1. Create a Cluster with AWS ParallelCluster
  2. Connect to the cluster
  3. Get to know Slurm
