The open science grid is a distributed heterogeneous network of computing clusters. Its infrastructure and protocols allow members to submit high throughput compute jobs for remote execution. All use is authenticated and authorized via a PKI infrastructure which associates jobs to a user and the virtual organization (VO) they belong to.
High Throughput Parallel Computing investigates using emerging multi-core architectures on the OSG and Blueridge to run performance intensive systems, especially molecular dynamics. This work is in collaboration with the OSG HTPC collaboration.
Visualize the OSG using the OSG Map. Nodes in the graph are clickable, as is information in the left navigation pane. Use the search field to search for specific sites. Expand sub-clusters to see their attributes.
Cyberinfrastructure sustainability is a critical challenge. Work on this site makes extensive use of continuous integration as an approach to improve reliability, sustainability and ultimately, repeatability.
