DescriptionColdFront is an open source HPC center resource allocation and management system recently developed and released by SUNY at Buffalo Center for Computational Research (CCR). ColdFront was developed to provide an easy way for HPC center staff to manage shared resources and for users to request access to those resources. It was first announced and released in conjunction with Super Computing 18 last November. In a very short period there has been a great deal of interest as judged by the number of views and clones on github and positive feedback from early adopters. Hence, there is a newly developing user community. This PEARC 19 BoF is an ideal venue to both bring together and expand this community with new users who will be exposed to ColdFront for the first time.
