  • Websites
  • XSEDE Website: https:/www.xsede.org
  • XDMoD Interface: https:/xdmod.ccr.ubuffalo.edu
  • XSEDE Services
  • Ticket System based on RT
  • SXEDEnet (private net provided by Internet2 AL2S)
  • User Interface and Online Information website, XUP, wiki (confluence)
  • Single Sign on Hub - login.xsede.org
  • XSEDE Certificate Authorities for issuing certs
  • XSEDE RSA 2-factor for SPs
  • Duo two-factor for end users
  • (almost) 7x25 XSEDE Operation Center (XOC)
  • Resource Description Repository: RDR provides repo for detailed info about an XSEDE resource and this information is used in a variety of places including the XUP
  • XSEDE Iinformation servies for resource discovery and description
  • SPS install information servies software
  • XSEDE info services architecture (resource description, central information services, dynamic resource publishing, user portal/gateways/software or service)
  • XSEDE Federation
  • The XSede Federation is a collection of partner resources called Service Providers (SPs) that add value to the national cyberinfrastructure
  • SPs can be Level 1, Level 2, or Level 3 
Victor H
  • Victor maintains a list and there are 7 Level 1 (NSF funded and allocated) SPs, 8  Level 2 SPs (2 NSF funded MRIs which have some portion allocated and 6 unallocated) and 20 Level 3 SPs (generally made up of non-NSF funded campus computing centers or campus resources/staff)
  • See the complete list in the presentation
  • Any of the HUB teams can contact Victor (victor@utk.edu) if they want to discuss further the use of XSEDE services for Big Data Hub purposes.  There is also the possibility (to be determined) if there is extensions to XSEDE services that are needed for the Hubs.

  • Jetstream, an XSEDE project 
  • Contact Nirva Merchant at Nirave@email.arizona.edu
  • NSF now funding clouds to do research, such as Bridges (Hybrid) and Jetstream
  • Jetstream is a NSF's first production cloud facility, part of the NSF eXtreme Digital (XD) program; provide on-demand interactie computing and analysis; enable configurable environments and architectures; user-friendly, widely accessible cloud environment; user-selectable libary of preconfigured virtual machines.
  • Working on Intel compilers and ebuggers -- Math Kernel Libraries, Data Analytics
  • Workforce development; HBCUs and Minority Serving Institutions and Tribal colleges
  • Who will use Jetstream? For the researcher needing a handful of cores (1 to 44 /vCPU); software crators and researchers neeing to crate their own customized virtual machines, containers and workflows; sicence gateway creators using Jetstream as a frontend or; STEM educators
  • Two levels of access: Interactive user access via web interface and vnc/ssh; peristent access for Science Gateways.
  • Production: 
  • RADII: REsource Aware Dataentric collaborative Infrastucture
  • A production level resource
  • Leverages exogenii 
  • Goal: To make data-driven colloabrtions a "turn key" experience for domain researchers anda "commodity" for the science community
  • Approach: To develo new cyberinfrastructure approaches and tools to manage data-centric collaborations built based on natural models 
  • Challenges: 
  • Procuring infrastructure is hard; 
  • infrastructure-ownership vs expertise-owenerhsip
  • lack of dedicated network infrastructure (transfer times can take weeks/months)
  • Data Infrastructure gap: limited infrastructure support to moitor and contorl data access and transfer
  • RADII Core
  • RADII allows users to programmatically create durable collaborative infrastructure to support data-centric collaboraitons through out their entire life-cycle
  • RADII relies on dataflow diagram formalism to describe all aspects of a collaboration.
  • Central to their approach is the orchestration of the provisioning of the intrastructure and the data management plane in an integrated fashion.
  • Foundational Technologies
  • ORCA (control software) / ExcoGENI (testbed)
  • RADII conects the two
  • Prototype integration of RADII with NSF HydroShare to support collaborations around data hydrology models including the provisioning of compute to excute models
  • They are looking for more user cases and domain science CI efforts that lack the tools to support their data related activities and collaboraitons. But projects would need to fit within existing infrastructure or come with their own infrastructure.
  • Can do prototyping but can't run full production commercial sites with ExcoGENII. 
  • NIST Data Science for Materials & Advanced Manufacturing
