Accelerate your time to release publications


Everyone is talking about cloud computing. But what is it exactly and what benefits does it bring? How can I use cloud and what can I do in the cloud?

Here are three possibilities, just to name a few examples, which you can achieve easily with Google Cloud:

  • Future-proof infrastructure
  • Powerful data and analytics
  • and serverless: just code


Sparkle is hosting a free webinar on 30 September 2022, 10:00 - 12:00 to show you the way into the cloud and how you can start your journey with Google Cloud.

We will guide you through discovering the first steps in the GCP world including special offerings for Researchers & Students. 

Secondly, we will introduce our Artificial Intelligence (AI) solutions, with which you can build your own models or use existing, pre-trained ones.

Finally, we will end up with our rocket fast HPC solutions and introduce you to Slurm and explore how to deploy such environments.
