Flywheel now provides additional support for customers’ existing infrastructure and workflows with two significant advances.
HPC with Singularity and Slurm
Flywheel has introduced support for High Performance Computing environments running singularity and Slurm. This integration enables users to save on computing costs and allows them to take advantage of significant investments made in existing computing resources. Flywheel Gears may be run on HPC clusters regardless of whether the Flywheel system is deployed on premises or in the cloud.
Rsync-like Data Access
CLI Sync provides users with an efficient method of syncing their Flywheel data with local file systems. This improved data portability allows customers to leverage pipelines and hardware not yet integrated with Flywheel. The rsync-like functionality ensures that only changes to data are migrated to local systems, thus saving time and cost.
