Leveraging Research Computing Resources with Community Software from XSEDE

Tuesday, March 27 | 3:00PM–3:45PM ET | Room 554
Session Type: Breakout Session
Delivery Format: Interactive Presentation
Providing computational resources to researchers can be difficult, especially in terms of getting the necessary expertise to meet research needs. The NSF-funded Extreme Science and Engineering Discovery Environment (XSEDE) provides access not only to resources but also to software toolkits that can be implemented on campus resources with minimal difficulty. XSEDE also offers consulting to help implement local resources that look like the supercomputing systems available at national centers. We will discuss building a Community Software Repository (CSR) that allows schools to implement a range of software, including cloud solutions, to support research computation needs and create a community of practice among implementing institutions.

Outcomes: Understand the gap between campus computational resources and the needs of researchers * Be able to differentiate between the offerings of the CSR and decide on appropriate choices for your environment * Interact with the community to find documentation and training, receive consulting, and ask questions
