  1. Advancing Scientific Discovery through TeraGrid Scott Lathrop TeraGrid Director of Education, Outreach and Training University of Chicago and Argonne National Laboratory

  2. TeraGrid - 11 Resource Providers, One Facility Grid Infrastructure Group (UChicago) UW PSC UC/ANL NCAR PU NCSA UNC/RENCI IU Caltech ORNL NICS USC/ISI SDSC LONI TACC Resource Provider (RP) Software Integration Partner

  3. TeraGrid Resources and Services • Computing - nearly a petaflop of computing power today and growing • 500 Tflop Ranger system at TACC • NICS (U Tenn) system to come on-line in July • Other systems will be coming on-line through NSF/OCI funding • Centralized help desk among all resource providers • Remote visualization servers and software • Data • Allocation of data storage facilities • Over 100 Scientific Data Collections • Central allocations process • Technical Support • Central point of contact for support of all systems • Advanced Support for TeraGrid Applications (ASTA) • Education and training events and resources • Over 20 Science Gateways

  4. Requesting Allocations of Time • TeraGrid resources are provided free to academic researchers and educators • Development Allocations Committee (DAC) for start-up accounts up to 30,000 hours of time are requests processed in two weeks - start-up and courses • Medium Resource Allocations Committee (MRAC) for requests of up to 500,000 hours of time are reviewed four times a year • Large Resource Allocations Committee (LRAC) for requests of over 500,000 hours of time are reviewed twice a year

  5. Advanced Support for TeraGrid Applications Virtualized Resources, Ensembles:FOAM Climate Model Liu (UWisc) Coupled Simulation: Full Body Arterial Tree Simulation Karniadakis (Brown) Sources: Ian Foster (UC/ANL), Mike Papka (UC/ANL), George Karniadakis (Brown). Images by UC/ANL.

  6. 10 initial projects as part of TG proposal >20 Gateway projects today No limit on how many gateways can use TG resources Prepare services and documentation so developers can work independently Open Science Grid (OSG) Special PRiority and Urgent Computing Environment (SPRUCE) National Virtual Observatory (NVO) Linked Environments for Atmospheric Discovery (LEAD) Computational Chemistry Grid (GridChem) Computational Science and Engineering Online (CSE-Online) GEON(GEOsciences Network) Network for Earthquake Engineering Simulation (NEES) SCEC Earthworks Project Network for Computational Nanotechnology and nanoHUB GIScience Gateway (GISolve) Biology and Biomedicine Science Gateway Open Life Sciences Gateway The Telescience Project Grid Analysis Environment (GAE) Neutron Science Instrument Gateway TeraGrid Visualization Gateway, ANL BIRN Gridblast Bioinformatics Gateway Earth Systems Grid Astrophysical Data Repository (Cornell) Science GatewaysBroadening Participation in TeraGrid

  7. “HPC University” • Catalog of live and self-paced training resources and events • Professional development and curriculum development workshops • Student internships and competitions • Publish resources via NSDL-CSERD
