Consulting & Outreach

To meet unique technical needs of our researchers, ACER provides one-on-one consultation services to all campus researchers. Based on initial consultation, ACER will put together a project team that can assist researchers with the architecture design, prototyping and development of the technical environment to meet specific research study design. From getting access to the appropriate resources to application (mobile/web) development, researchers can request these consultations to utilize available resources to the fullest. We are available to help you decide if our services meets your needs.

Here are some examples of questions you can pose during consultation sessions:

  1. How can I optimize my parallel code to achieve better performance on the distributed computing cluster?
  2. What are the best practices for managing large-scale datasets efficiently on the storage infrastructure?
  3. Can you assist me in configuring and utilizing advanced job scheduling features to enhance resource utilization?
  4. What strategies can I employ to minimize data transfer latency and optimize communication in a multi-node computing environment?
  5. How can I take advantage of GPU acceleration for specific computational tasks within my application?
  6. What security measures are in place to protect sensitive data and ensure compliance with relevant regulations?
  7. Can you guide me on integrating external libraries or frameworks into the high-performance computing environment?
  8. What debugging tools and techniques are available for identifying and resolving performance bottlenecks in my code?
  9. Is there a recommended workflow for scaling up my simulations to leverage the full capabilities of the high-performance computing system?
  10. What monitoring tools are available for tracking resource usage and identifying potential issues in real-time?
  11. Can you provide guidance on utilizing cloud computing resources in conjunction with the on-premise high-performance computing infrastructure?
  12. How can I optimize memory usage and efficiently manage data movement between RAM and storage for my specific application?
  13. What measures are in place for data backup, recovery, and ensuring the integrity of critical research data?
  14. Are there advanced features or command-line options available in the Globus CLI (Command Line Interface) that provide additional control and customization for complex data transfer scenarios?
