In this video from the HPC User Forum in Tucson, Matt Vaughn from TACC presents: Jetstream – Adding Cloud-based Computing to the National Cyberinfrastructure.
“Jetstream is the first user-friendly, scalable cloud environment for XSEDE. The system enables researchers working at the “long tail of science” and the creation of truly customized virtual machines and computing architectures. It has a web-based user interface integrated with XSEDE via Globus Auth. The architecture is derived from the team’s collective experience with CyVerse Atmosphere, Chameleon and Quarry. The system also fosters reproducible, sharable computing with geographically isolated clouds located at Indiana University and TACC.”
Each Jetstream cloud provider has:
- 320 nodes
- 7680 cores
- 40 TB RAM
- 640 TB local disk
- 960 TB block storage
Funded partners for Jetstream include: Indiana University, TACC, University of Arizona/iPlant, University of Chicago, Johns Hopkins University, Penn State, and UT San Antonio. Vendor Partners include Dell, Inktank, and Adaptive Computing.
