1 Research CU Boulder Cyberinfrastructure & Data management Thomas Hauser Director Research Computing CU-Boulder

2 Research CU Boulder Cyberinfrastructure consists of computational systems, data and information management, advanced instruments, visualization environments, and people, all linked together by software and advanced networks to improve scholarly productivity and enable knowledge breakthroughs and discoveries not otherwise possible CASC/EDUCAUSE report, "Developing a Coherent Cyberinfrastructure from the Campus to the National Facilities: Challenges and Strategies" - joint workshop, July 2008 Definition of Cyberinfrastructure 6/16/11CSG Workshop: Research Computing 2

3 Research CU Boulder The CI Problem Statement “Although good infrastructure is often taken for granted and noticed only when it stops functioning, it is among the most complex and expensive things that society creates.” Revolutionizing Science and Engineering through Cyberinfrastructure: Report of the National Science Foundation Blue Ribbon Advisory Panel on Cyberinfrastructure, (Atkins Report), /16/11CSG Workshop: Research Computing

4 Research CU Boulder Share computing and storage infrastructure Shared facilities are beneficial to all participants Reduced energy and cooling costs Better managed and utilized resources Challenge: Business Model Storage Compute Engage research community from the beginning Bridge the culture between IT and research Developing policies Collaboration with research community Create trust and partnerships Create a reward system for researchers to think institutionally Successful Campus CI Support 6/16/11CSG Workshop: Research Computing

5 Research CU Boulder CU-Boulder Research Computing Services Local research computing environment Computing Supercomputer High-throughput compute resources Research network Data storage Data management services Collaboration between Libraries Research Computing National Snow and Ice Data Center Education and Training Research computing workshops Computational Science and Engineering Initiative 5 6/16/11CSG Workshop: Research Computing

6 Research CU Boulder 6/16/11CSG Workshop: Research Computing 6

7 Research CU Boulder Storage & Data Management Provide a condominium model for large storage Basic infrastructure provided by Research Computing A small amount of storage available to researchers, e.g 250 GB Researcher can add storage for the price of medium to the infrastructure Provide expertise and services around this storage Access to local clusters, workstations and laptops Databases Data management 6/16/11CSG Workshop: Research Computing 7
