The HPC Knowledge Portal organises several seminars, workshops, online courses and conferences aimed to share expertise and strategies in High Performance Computing, High Perfomance Data Analysis and Clustering.

About CLUES : is an energy management system for High Performance Computing (HPC) Clusters and Cloud infrastructures. The main function of the system is to power off internal cluster nodes when they are not being used, and conversely to power them on when they are needed. CLUES system integrates with the cluster management middleware, such as a batch-queuing system or a cloud infrastructure management system, by means of different connectors.

CLUES also integrates with the physical infrastructure by means of different plug-ins, so that nodes can be powered on/off using the techniques which best suit each particular infrastructure (e.g. using wake-on-LAN, Intelligent Platform Management Interface (IPMI) or Power Device Units, PDU).
