Abstract

XSEDE is the NSF follow on to the TeraGrid. The XSEDE system architecture is a three layer architecture with an access layer, a services layer, and a resources layer. The access and services layers require resources on which to run. It is desirable to test the GenesisII and Unicore6 interoperability on XSEDE testbed resources before release, and during development. We would like to use FutureGrid resources as a testbed for GenesisII-Unicore6 interop project.

Intellectual Merit

XSEDE is an NSF-funded infrastructure project. The intellectual merit comes primarily via the science that is done using the infrastructure.

Broader Impacts

The impact of XSEDE will be significant. Dozens of large science projects will use XSEDE on a daily basis. Further, XSEDE will lower the barriers for collaboration between campuses.

Scale of Use

Large scale, not so much in nodes as in number of host
