Jetstream Training Session for ECSS Consultants

Host Site:

Indiana University

Host site URL:

NSF’s Jetstream Cloud is a Infrastructure-as-a-Service platform comprised of two geographically isolated OpenStack+Ceph clusters, each supporting hundreds of virtual machines and data volumes. The two cloud systems are integrated via a user-friendly web application that provides a user interface for common cloud computing operations, authentication to XSEDE via Globus, and an expressive set of service APIs. Jetstream enables on-demand access to interactive, user-configurable computing and analysis capability as well as persistent science gateway functionality. It also seeks to democratize access to cloud capabilities and promote sharable, reproducible research.

This session will describe Jetstream in greater detail, as well as how its unique combination of hardware, software, and user engagement support scientific research and also provide hands-on training for the majority of the time using the Jetstream/OpenStack API for basic VM construction and operation, touching on best practices, a discussion of advanced topics such as clusters (virtual and container orchestration), and allowing Q&A time for consultants.

Length: 3 hours (30-40 min introduction, the rest hands on)
Requirements: Laptop. Working SSH client. Working web browser.
