Opportunities

Opportunities

What are the new opportunities that will be provided by integrating Cloud and Cyberinfrastructure?

  • Easier Access to additional resources

    • Handle Surge Cases

    • Enable real-time analysis from instruments and detectors

  • Provide redundancy for Critical Services

    • Clouds can act as a backup resource or participate in a pool

    • Shift load during an outage or scheduled maintenance

  • Shift workloads that make economic sense to the cloud

    • Low utilization applications (web gateways, data repos, etc)

    • CPU Intensive Apps with low concurrency and modest data needs.

  • Create a market space for Applications

    • Clouds can host applications developed through government sponsoring allowing end-user to cover resource cost

    • Commercial clouds open the door to an incremental charging model for applications to create a sustainable model for software


Challenges

Challenges

What would be the key challenges, technical as well as from a users perspective?

  • Missing middle-ware to seamlessly (and easily) integrate resources

  • User administration of Cloud resources

  • Unpredictable or poor performance for many applications

  • Data transfers performance to commercial providers

  • Surprise costs – Data storage, data transfers (more than just compute)

  • Evolving Security Model – Progress is being made but the dust is still settling.


Immediate steps

Immediate Steps

What are immediate (suggested) next steps, for agencies and for the community?

  • Establish peering arrangements with major providers.

    • 3x10G ESnetpeerings exist today (expandable based on mission need)

    • Need for cloud provider network troubleshooting, data transfer tool configuration, cloud performance tuning

    • Bandwidth effectively extend to backend storage infrastructure

  • Established reduced costs for data storage and transfers to commercial providers

  • Identify applications to act as demonstration projects (and not just slam dunk ones).

  • Investigate Operational Changes with CI to support more workloads

    • Flexible environments

    • Flexible scheduling and policy options
