4 FutureGrid key Concepts I FutureGrid supports Computer Science and Computational Science research in cloud, grid and parallel computing (HPC) The FutureGrid testbed provides to its users: – An interactive development and testing platform for middleware and application users looking at interoperability, functionality, performance or evaluation with or without virtualization – A rich education and teaching platform for advanced cyberinfrastructure (computer science) classes FutureGrid has a complementary focus to both the Open Science Grid and the other parts of XSEDE. Note that significant current use in Education, Computer Science Systems and Biology/Bioinformatics

5 FutureGrid key Concepts II Rather than loading images onto VM’s, FutureGrid supports Cloud, Grid and Parallel computing environments by dynamically provisioning software as needed onto “bare-metal” using Moab/xCAT –Image library for MPI, OpenMP, MapReduce (Hadoop, Dryad, Twister), gLite, Unicore, Xen, Genesis II, ScaleMP (distributed Shared Memory), Nimbus, Eucalyptus, OpenNebula, OpenStack, KVM, Windows ….. Growth comes from users depositing novel images in library FutureGrid has ~4300 (will grow to ~5000) distributed cores with a dedicated network and a Spirent XGEM network fault and delay generator Image1 Image2 ImageN … LoadChooseRun

52 Questions? 52

53 FutureGrid Training, Education and Outreach Presented by Renato Figueiredo Associate Professor, University of Florida

54 Overview Traditional ways of delivering hands-on training and education in parallel/distributed computing have non-trivial dependences on the environment Difficult to replicate same environment on different resources (e.g. HPC clusters, desktops) Difficult to cope with changes in the environment (e.g. software upgrades) Virtualization technologies remove key software dependences through a layer of indirection

55 TEO Infrastructure - guiding principles Fidelity: TEO activities should use full-fledged, executable software: education/training modules – Learn using the proper tools Reproducibility: Creators of content should be able to install, configure, and test their modules once, and be assured of the same functional behavior regardless of where the module is deployed – Incentive to invest effort in developing, testing and documenting new modules

56 TEO Infrastructure - guiding principles Deployability: Students and users should be able to deploy modules in a simple manner, and in a variety of resources – Reduce barriers to entry; avoid dependences upon a particular infrastructure Community-oriented: Modules should be simple to share, discover, reuse, and expand – Create conditions for growth

57 Towards this vision in FutureGrid Executable modules – virtual appliances – Deployable on FutureGrid resources – Deployable on other cloud platforms, as well as on virtualized desktops Community sharing – Web 2.0 portal, appliance image repositories – An aggregation hub for executable modules and documentation

58 Virtual appliances Leverage existing virtual networking software and virtual appliance images used in other projects Focus: integration with FutureGrid resources – Leverage network virtualization software FutureGrid includes ViNe and GroupVPN – Image deployment, testing, documentation, tutorials KVM/Xen, Nimbus/Eucalyptus – FutureGrid portal, ability for users to contribute content

59 Virtual appliance clusters Same image, different VPNs copy instantiate Hadoop + Virtual Network A Hadoop worker Another Hadoop worker Repeat… Virtual machine Group VPN GroupVPN Credentials Virtual IP - DHCP Virtual IP - DHCP

64 Questions? 64

65 Experiment Management on FutureGrid Warren Smith Texas Advanced Computing Center (TACC) 65

66 Experiment Management Goals Support rigorous experimentation – Define experiments in detail – Record experimental results User-specified measurements (placement and granularity) – Share experiment information Experiments can be repeated and verified Variations on experiments can be performed Convenient execution of experiments – FutureGrid has distributed resources and services – Isn’t one true way to run an experiment

67 Experiment Management Approach Provide tools to execute distributed experiments – Access (potentially many) resources – Interact with a number of services – Support execution of experiment plans Support several usage models – Workflow (often large, automatic, batched, unattended) – Interactive (attended) – Hybrid Store experiment information for later use – Plans (workflows or recordings) and results – Searchable and shareable – Re-run experiments or run modified versions

68 Experiment Management Available Components Pegasus – Workflow-based experiment management – Builds on existing Pegasus software Kickstart to record job execution and its environment Details of Pegasus presented elsewhere TakTuk – Basic interactive experiment management – Reuse tool deployed on Grid 5000 Host List Manager – Organize provisioned systems into groups, generate host lists for TakTuk – Set of simple command line programs

69 Experiment Management Planned Components Messaging-based Execution and Monitoring System (MEMS) – More sophisticated interactive experiment management – Integrated message streams for commands, results, and monitoring Pegasus provisioning workflows – Include resource provisioning into workflow Experiment Repository – Store and retrieve information about experiments – Uses the FG Image Repository as component. User Portal integration Convert experiment plans – Help users migrate from one tool to another – TakTuk commands MEMS messages Pegasus Workflows

70 Questions? 70

71 Open Discussion 71

72 Research on FutureGrid Were there ever experiments you could not run and if so what were the obstacles? What do you need to obtain results for your next paper? – Resources, repositories, middleware? What kind of experiment management tools do you use today and how could they be improved? How do you collaborate with colleagues on developing complex experiments? What would make you come to FutureGrid rather than use resources at your institution? 72

73 Education on FutureGrid What types of resources would help you teach a class? – Access to hardware? Integrated set of readymade course materials? Ease of use? What would help you teach your next tutorial? How would you like to share teaching materials with others? 73

74 Usage Modalities and Outreach What is your ideal scenario of usage? What would prevent you from using infrastructure such as FG? Where and how do you typically find information about services that enhance your mode of work? What concerns do you have about using FG? 74
