This workshop targets researchers and educators, even those with no previous cloud computing experience. Attendees will hear an overview of Jetstream2 (including various examples and use cases), learn about the ACCESS ecosystem, and learn helpful tips and tricks. Hands-on activitities will include how to access Jetstream2 and how to access and launch VMs on it through the Exosphere interface.
As research and education advance, so does their need for advanced computational resources. Through the Advanced Cyberinfrastructure Coordination Ecosystem: Services & Support (ACCESS) program, advanced computing resources are being shared with researchers and educators for free, among them Jetstream2.
Jetstream2 is an NSF-funded user-friendly cloud computing environment for researchers and educators running on OpenStack and featuring Exosphere as the primary user interface. It is built on the successes of Jetstream and continues the main features of that system while extending to a broader range of hardware and services, including GPUs, large memory nodes, virtual clustering, and many other features. It is designed to provide both infrastructure for gateways and other “always on” services as well as to give researchers and educators access to interactive computing and data analysis resources on demand.
