RI Science Gateways for improving the uptake of Grid and Cloud Computing Infrastructures Tamas Kiss, Stephen Winter, Gabor Terstyanszky, Thierry Delaitre University of Westminster Wibke Sudholt, CloudBroker GmbH Peter Kacsuk, Zoltan Farkas, SZTAKI Jens Krüger, Sandra Gesing, University of Tübingen

2 Using Distributed Computing Infrastructures is not so easy gsissh -p 2222 globus-job-submit pbs -q RXXXXX /bin/hostname -f globus-job-status globus-job-get-output globus-job-clean ? ! or is it?

3 SCI-BUS is a 3-year EU FP7 project Started on 1 st October 2011 Build around 30 science gateways to various user communities in Europe 10 academic and 5 commercial partners from 10 European countries. SCIentific Gateway Based User Support

4 Main objectives of SCI-BUS Create a generic-purpose gateway technology Elaborate an application-specific gateway building technology and customisation methodology Establish production gateway services both for NGIs and various user communities Provide seamless access to major computing, data and networking DCIs and services including supercomputers, clusters, grids and clouds Create and maintain a Liferay portlet repository that enables the quick creation of user specific customised gateways Provide gateway development and application development support Develop business models to guarantee the sustainability of the gateway services and to enable the commercial exploitation

5 Value brought by the project SCI-BUS will serve large number of user communities by providing generic-purpose and customized scientific gateways for them. SCI-BUS will also create and provide access to many different portlet and application repositories to help user communities in sharing and running these applications via the SCI-BUS gateways

6 Project partners: International seismology community Helio-physics community Swiss systems biology community of the project German MoSGrid computational chemistry and bioinformatics community Biomedical researchers community of the Academic Medical Centre of the University of Amsterdam Astrophysics community PireGrid SMEs community Business process modelling community involving a wide range of areas such as finance, healthcare, government, production, robotics and emergency Blender rendering community Citizen web-2 community Public application developer community Subcontractors: 6 sub-contractors to be selected representing additional user communities Hugely competitive – over 3 times as much applications Additional user communities supported by the project The SCI-BUS user communities

7 The gateway services will enable unified access to all the major DCI infrastructures used in Europe: Local and remote clusters accessed by queuing systems (PBS, LSF, Condor, SGE) Local and remote supercomputers Local and volunteer Desktop Grids (BOINC, XtremWeb, OurGrid) Grids (ARC, gLite, Globus, UNICORE) Academic Public and Private Clouds (OpenNebula, Eucalyptus, etc.) Public Commercial Clouds (Amazon EC2, IBM Cloud, etc.) The SCI-BUS architecture

9 The baseline technology P-GRADE Portals around the globe –National Grid portals (UK, Ireland, Croatia, Turkey, Spain, Belgium, Malaysia, Kazakhstan, Switzerland, Australia, ClGrid, etc.) –HP-SEE/SEE-GRID-SCI, BalticGrid –US Open Science Grid, TeraGrid –IDGF (International Desktop Grid Federation) –SHIWA Simulation Platform –Economy-Grid, Swiss BioGrid, Bio és Biomed Virtual Organisations, MathGrid, etc. HP-SEE

10 P-GRADE Portal software family P-GRADE Portal 2.4 NGS P-GRADE portal P-GRADE Portal 2.5 P-GRADE Portal 2.8 P-GRADE Portal WS-PGRADE Portal 3.1 WS-PGRADE Portal 3.2 GEMLCA Grid Legacy Code Arch. GEMLCA, storage concepts Basic concepts WS-PGRADE Portal 3.3 P-GRADE Portal 2.10 Open source since 2008 Open source since WS-PGRADE Portal 3.4

11 Motivations of creating WS- PGRADE/gUSE To overcome (most of) the limitations of P-GRADE portal: To provide better modularity to replace any service To improve scalability to millions of jobs To enable advanced dataflow patterns To interface with wider range of resources To separate Application Developer view from Application User view WS-PGRADE (Web Services Parallel Grid Runtime and Developer Environment) and gUSE (Grid User Support Environment) architecture

12 WS P-GRADE in a nutshell General purpose, workflow-oriented portal. Supports the development and execution of workflow-based applications Based on Liferay Services supported by the portal: New functionalities – Web services – DB connectors – Embedded workflows – Job level PS – Conditional jobs – Recursive graph – Multi-generator – Multi-collector – CROSS product PS – DOT product PS Basic ServicesEGEE grids (LCG2,GLite) Globus grids (GT2,GT4) Desktop grids clusters Job execution File storage Certificate management Information system Brokering Job monitoring Workflow & job visualization

15 ASM Application Specific Module A new module called Application Specific Module has been developed for gUSE that ease the creation of Application Specified Portlets – The module provides programming API to control applications developed using gUSE – The module provides programming API to access inner gUSE services Any kind of Graphical interface can be developed on top of this module – GUI written in JSP, JSTL (Java Servlet Tag Library ) and Java – GUI can be customized for the grid application – GUI can be customized for end users

16 ASM - Application Specific Module DCI systems Grid Application Developer creates own Grid Application via ws-PGrade and export it to the local repository gUSE Repository ws-PGrade Grid Application Submitter Workflow Interpreter Workflow Storage Storage Information User space Grid Application Then the Grid Portal Developer creates a new web-application (mainly an web-interface) which fits to the user community's needs, and connects it to the gUSE using ASM API Developed web- interface ASM Finally the end-users create own application from the exported one, parameterize and execute it using the developed portlet > Grid Application
