Chameleon is an experimental testbed for Computer Science systems research. It allows experimenters to allocate potentially hundreds of nodes for their exclusive use and reconfigure those nodes on bare metal level. The testbed comprises hundreds of nodes (a total of ~15,000 cores), 5PB of storage in various configurations, 100G network between sites at University of Chicago and TACC, and a broad diversity of hardware including different types of GPUs, FPGAs, NVMe, SSDs, and non-x86 architectures.

In this one hour webinar, we will showcase key features of the Chameleon testbed that enable distributed systems experimentation with bare-metal access. Users will develop hands-on experience deploying bare metal images, working with image snapshots, configuring and deploying a network, and connecting to a monitoring service for data collection.
