Parallel Compute on Juliabox


#1

You may have seen that Juliabox is now a great environment to experience Julia’s parallel computation facilities. It lets you create isolated Julia processes with dedicated CPU and memory, and then performing computations using the standard Julia primitives: @everywhere, @parallel for and pmap.

Documentation for this is now up on our docs site: http://docs.juliabox.com. There are example notebooks that demonstrate this functionality in the tutorial folder as you log on to Juliabox.

The default setup for all users allows you to create clusters with one master and two workers. If you want to trial larger clusters, please write to us at juliabox@juliacomputing.com, and we’ll set you up for a couple of weeks. We’re keen to find out what cool stuff you can do using this facility.
