1 Presentation to Cyberinfrastructure Symposium Jim Bottum CIO, Clemson University Presidential Fellow, Internet2 February 13, 2013

2 Strategy

3 Clemson: Strategy Alignment “Cyberinfrastructure is the primary backbone that ties together innovation in research, instruction, and service to elevate Clemson to the Top 20.” Doris Helms Provost 3

4 Getting Started: Clemson 2007 After upgrade in 2007

5 National Backbone Network 1986 Original NSFNet design, NCAR, Boulder, CO, September 17, 1985 SDSC NCAR CTC JvNC PSC NCSA Map of U.S. Map of U.S. 5 US Higher Ed still has to provision REN for itself

6 First South Carolina regional optical network, CLight, integrated with national research networks C-Light 6

7 Clemson – 2005-2012 Network growth has made Clemson more competitive

8 Stay in Balance with Computing and Data Storage Clemson – 2012 and beyond Network must continue to grow to support new initiatives and growing data volume Deployment of Internet2 Innovation Platform – 100 Gb/s

9 Infrastructure Supporting and Empowering Computer Science Research ActiveCDN Kansas Utah Clemson Benefits of ActiveCDN: Dynamic deployment based on load Localized services such as weather, ads and news GPO Jae Woo Lee, Jan Janak, Roberto Francescangeli, SumanSrinivasan, Eric Liu, Michael Kester, Salman Baset, Wonsang Song, and Henning Schulzrinne Internet Real-Time Lab, Columbia University Program content distribution services deep into the network, adapt distribution in real time as demand shifts

10 The Next Generation “It’s time to rethink the entire university as ONE research team and to collaborate globally with any collaborators with ease.” “From NSF’s GENI project to the White House US Ignite program, the nation is building not just the infrastructure, but a national community to pave way for this integrated tomorrow. CCIT is clearly taking the lead in this national effort.” -KC Wang – Electrical & Computer Engineering

11 Research feeds back into infrastructure National Science Foundation CC-NIE Award ($1M)

12 12 Physicist John Kogut, UIUC, Simulating Quantum Chromodynamics Circa 1986 Computing: Communities and Technology Changes – Support Process Does Not

13 Non-Traditional Communities - Open Parks Grid Network Partnership between PRTM, Library, CCIT, SoC Spoken into existence Connecting Parks & professionals around the world. Open Parks Grid Hub The Hub provides us with the capability to search data sets, people, papers, funding requests and maps to create strength values and provide answers to questions by creating linkages.  

14 Non-Traditional Communities - Social Media Listening Center Jason Thatcher, faculty lead from Department of Management 1 facility in College of Business, 1 facility in College of Arts & Humanities First NSF award in Management Department First facility of its kind in higher education Partnership with Dell and * 1 of app drivers in CC-NIE grant

15 15 The Invisible Supercomputer -Condor  Started Summer 2007  Over 12,000,000 cpu hours delivered first 5 years

16 Clemson Condominium Cluster  Community HPC Clusters – Shared Investments  Highly leveraged instrument for research  #4 among public academic institutions Technology Change

17 Impacts: Community Growth

18 Departments using HPC HPC Users – FY08 Total Depts. = 19

19 HPC Users – FY13 Total Depts. = 36

20 Infrastructure as a Competitive Advantage “As a computational materials scientist, I was seeking a university that was investing not only in supercomputing facilities but also in providing the users an efficient support system. In my experience, the latter was usually missing in most universities. However, when I asked to test Palmetto before deciding to join Clemson, I quickly realized that Palmetto had both, and both were very topnotch. That definitely put Clemson on top of my list as future destination. Most importantly, I have been able to focus on science, rather than worrying about overheating of my cluster, that too without the hassle of waiting forever on queues - for once, I am having my cake and eating it too!” Sapna Sarupria – Chemical Engineering Former Faculty at Princeton University

21 HPC Impacts: Research Funding $47.2 M – awards to HPC users since FY10 For FY11 ($23.4M) alone, this is nearly 25% of research funding for entire University ($96M) Degrees Conferred 36 PhD degrees produced from research groups that make use of the Palmetto Cluster (August ‘08-August ’12) Publications 115 publications made possible because of Palmetto Cluster (since FY10) Majority of these are refereed journals

22 Impacts: South Carolina Greenville Tech Clemson HPC Allocations in the State of South Carolina 132 non-Clemson Palmetto Trainees

23 Impacts: Economic Development SC SmartState Endowed Chair ($4M) Dell/Intel Center of Excellence in Next Generation Computing “Dell and Leading Research Universities Increase Access to Research Computing Supported By Internet2” leading-research-universities-increase-ac/ leading-research-universities-increase-ac/

24 Futures

25 Condo of Condos  NSF grant to expand Clemson’s condominium HPC model to a national scale

26 What is the Condo of Condos? Inter-institutional aggregation of resources Building a community through leveraging campus expertise Marginal investments to create a “transformational” change Makes this possible across multiple campuses:
