1 1 US activities and strategy :NSF Ron Perrott

2 2 TeraGrid An instrument that delivers high-end IT resources/services –a computational facility – over two PFlop –Science Gateways –discipline-specific web-portal front- ends –a data storage and management facility – over 20 PetaBytes –a high-bandwidth national data network Support, education and training events Available freely to research and education projects with a US lead

3 3 TeraGrid Objectives DEEP Science: enabling terascale and petascale science –make science more productive through an integrated set of very-high capability resources address key challenges prioritized by users WIDE Impact: empowering communities –bring TeraGrid capabilities to the broad science community partner with science community leaders OPEN Infrastructure, OPEN Partnership –a coordinated, general purpose, reliable set of services and resources partner with campuses and facilities

4 4 The eXtreme Digital (XD) Program XD : third generation TeraGrid program – : Distributed/Extended Terascale Facility – : Grid Infrastructure + Resource Providers – : eXtreme Digital (XD) + Service Providers

5 eXtreme Digital Resources – High-Performance Computing and Storage Services Track 2 awardees – High-Performance Remote Visualization and Data Analysis Services 2 awards; 5 years; $3M/year – Integrating Services (5 years, $26M/year) Coordination and Management Service (CMS) – 5 years; $12M/year Technology Audit and Insertion Service (TAIS) – 5 years; $3M/year Advanced User Support Service (AUSS) – 5 years; $8M/year Training, Education and Outreach Service (TEOS) – 5 years, $3M/year

6 XSEDE : Governance Leadership – partnership led by NCSA, NICS, PSC, TACC and SDSC: CI centers with deep experience – partners who strongly complement these CI centers with expertise in science, engineering, technology and education Balanced governance model – strong central management, rapid response to issues and opportunities – delegation and decentralization of decision-making authority – openness to genuine stakeholder participation stakeholder engagement, advisory committees – improved professional project management practices formal risk management and change control 6

7 XSEDE: Extending Impact Coordinated national program with greater scope and scale – increased diversity of topics, modes of delivery, and reach to new communities and audiences – broaden participation among under-represented communities Campus bridging for effective use of CI resources – more tightly integrate with campuses through expanded Champions program and additional bridging activities Establish certificate and degree programs – institutional incorporation of CS&E curricula; professional development certificate – prepare undergraduates, graduates and future K-12 teachers 7

9 XD Coordination and Management Service - design of the grid architecture - management of its implementation - management of accounting, authorization, authentication, allocation and security services, - coordination of the component services - maintenance of a responsive, user-centric operational posture - coordination of those service providers that provide access to physical resources 9

10 Technology Audit and Insertion Service - quality assurance and quality control - review and test advanced software tools for manipulating, processing and analysing very large amounts of information - testing advanced software tools and developing deployment strategies, in partnership with the relevant service providers. 10

11 Advanced user support” support of researchers or research groups running complicated computer programs, researchers or research groups attempting to develop and use complex workflows, and researchers or research groups trying to develop or implement science gateways 11

12 Training, Education and Outreach Service training for staff, current users and prospective users integration of research and education broadening of participation in science and engineering that exploits by under-represented groups. 12
