The HDF Group will be hosting a webinar presented by Loïc Huder of ESRF on Wednesday, August 31 at 4:00 p.m. US central time. H5Web is a web viewer for HDF5 files. It can be used to browse HDF5 files and display datasets with performant WebGL-based visualisations. While such files can be requested from a separate server (e.g. HSDS) for modularity, it is now possible to load and explore a file fully in the browser by using a WebAssembly HDF5 library called h5wasm. In this talk, presenter Loïc Huder will show how the team leveraged h5wasm to design a VSCode extension that uses H5Web to explore and visualize HDF5 files. Once the H5Web extension is installed, exploring and visualising a local HDF5...

The HDF Group hosted a webinar presented by the Hermes team on Friday, August 5, 2022. Hermes is a distributed I/O buffering system for deep distributed storage hierarchies, which are commonly found on modern HPC systems. This webinar will highlight an exciting new component of the library, the Buffer Organizer, which will be released in Hermes 0.8.0-beta. Slide Deck https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=MMIlpx5YqFU  ...

If you are looking to store HDF5 data in the cloud there are several different technologies that can be used and choosing between them can be somewhat confusing. In this post, I thought it would be helpful to cover some of the options with the hope of helping HDF users make the best decision for their deployment. Each project will have its own requirements and special considerations, so please take this as just a starting point....

The Highly Scalable Data Service (HSDS) runs as a set of containers in Docker (or pods in Kubernetes) and like all things Docker, each container instance is created based on a container image file. Unlike say, a library binary, the container image includes all the dependent libraries needed for the container to run. In this blog post, HSDS senior architect John Readey explains how to get HSDS running in a Docker container or Kubernetes pod, and gives some tips and tricks to ensure everything runs smoothly for you. ...
