The FutureGrid Project
a capability that makes it possible for researchers to tackle complex
research challenges in computer science related to the use and security
of grids and clouds. These include topics ranging from authentication,
authorization, scheduling, virtualization, middleware design, interface
design and cybersecurity, to the optimization of grid-enabled and
cloud-enabled computational schemes for researchers in astronomy,
chemistry, biology, engineering, atmospheric science and epidemiology.
The project team will provide a significant new experimental computing
grid and cloud test-bed, named FutureGrid, to the research community,
together with user support for third-party researchers conducting
experiments on FutureGrid.
The SUPER project is a broadly-based SciDAC
institute with expertise in compilers and other system tools,
performance engineering, energy management, and resilience. The goal of
the project is to ensure that DOE’s computational scientists can successfully exploit the emerging generation of high performance computing (HPC)
systems. This goal will be met by providing application scientists with
strategies and tools to productively maximize performance, conserve
energy, and attain resilience.
