Solutions Interactive Application Service (IAS) On-line, on-demand access to scientific applications Share application sessions and data with other users Technology IAS is hosted on top of a cloud computing platform Use ASPEN ( http://grid.ucalgary.ca/projects/DataCentre/ ) which can dynamically provision virtual machines to host applications based on user demand Next Steps Batch processing and automated workflow services Handle longer running data processing tasks and simulations Automate data workflows involving data acquisition and transformation of data into different data products more suitable for use by scientists (i.e., mosaic, reproject and subset MODIS data) Applications SC09 Nov. 14-20, 2009

Solutions

Interactive Application Service (IAS)

On-line, on-demand access to scientific applications

Share application sessions and data with other users

Technology

IAS is hosted on top of a cloud computing platform

Use ASPEN ( http://grid.ucalgary.ca/projects/DataCentre/ ) which can dynamically provision virtual machines to host applications based on user demand

Next Steps

Batch processing and automated workflow services

Handle longer running data processing tasks and simulations

Automate data workflows involving data acquisition and transformation of data into different data products more suitable for use by scientists (i.e., mosaic, reproject and subset MODIS data)
