During this year's RMACC High Performance Computing Symposium, the Open Science Grid User Support team is offering a session on Thursday morning to integrate your campus HPC cluster into the OSG, in real time.  What are the benefits of doing this?


  •  As part of the OSG ecosystem, you can support science from over 50 multi-campus virtual organizations, including for example the LIGO experiment, and thus help accelerate science across many disciplines including those prominent at your own institution.  
  • This is handy way to keep resources busy when local demand falls or when users are still scaling up to reach the available  capacity.
  • The OSG is an XSEDE service provider.  Connecting your HPC cluster to the OSG allows your institution to directly support the XSEDE science community. 
  • For NSF CC* proposals, this would allow you to demonstrate integration of your center with the national cyberinfrastructure.
  • For reporting purposes, the OSG will provide accounting statistics showing your HPC cluster contributions to the shared national cyberinfrastructure, the resulting publications, and links to science highlights.


Requirements are minimal and light!


      The requirements and pre-workshop preparation are minimal: http://bit.ly/osgrmacc.   No OSG software will need to be installed on your system for the basic connection; a gateway service dedicated to your campus will be hosted by the OSG. All that is required is a normal user account and SSH access to your login host.  You control the policy as for any user.  Many sites will offer a low priority backfill queue (evicted jobs will be rescheduled to other sites automatically if preemption is used).


If interested please prepare the complete this form https://goo.gl/forms/u82tRfSmW4aYHX1h1 before the start of the Symposium (the sooner the better so we can work out kinks or answer technical questions in advance).   Please send any questions to user-support@opensciencegrid.org
