Rain: Dynamically Provisioning Clouds within FutureGrid

TIME: 5:15PM - 7:00PM

ROOM:Main Lobby

This work presents a novel method for dynamically provisioning Cloud services onto HPC resources provided through the FutureGrid project. The dynamic provisioning process enables scientific researchers to build advanced platforms and services using FutureGrid infrastructure to leverage the power of HPC in a way that was previously impossible with traditional Grid infrastructure. The Runtime Adaptable INsertion (RAIN) service allows for researchers to leverage Cloud infrastructure to deploy their own platform and operating environment with ease, a task which was previously impossible with any HPC system available. Research has shown entire resource re-provisioning can be accomplished in a very short time, which warrants the use of RAIN due to its added benefits and ease of use to researchers. This advancement may finally lower the entry barrier into HPC for a large number of scientists who's requirements were too large and means too small take advantage of HPC resources.
