Chameleon: A Large-scale, Reconfigurable Experimental Environment for Next Generation Cloud Research

Talk Abstract

Cloud services have become ubiquitous to all major 21st century economic activities -- there are however still many open questions surrounding this new technology. IN particular, many open research questions concern the relationship between cloud computing and high performance computing, the suitability of cloud computing for data-intensive applications, and its position with respect to emergent trends such as Software Defined Networking. A persistent barrier to further understanding of those issues has been the lack of a large-scale testbed where they can be explored.

With funding from the National Science Foundation (NSF), the Chameleon project provides such a large-scale platform to the open research community allowing them to explore transformative concepts in deeply programmable cloud services, design, and core technologies. The testbed, deployed at the University of Chicago and the Texas Advanced Computing Center, will ultimately consist of almost 15,000 cores, 5PB of total disk space, and leverage 100 Gbps connection between the sites. While a large part of the testbed will consist of homogenous hardware to support large-scale experiments, a portion of it will support heterogeneous units allowing experimentation with high-memory, large-disk, low-power, GPU, and co-processor units. To support a broad range of experiments, the project will support a graduated configuration system allowing full user configurability of the software stack, from provisioning of bare metal and network interconnects to delivery of fully functioning cloud environments. This talk will describe the goals, the building, and the modus operandi of the testbed.

Autonomy in the Open Science Grid or Pay No Attention to the Operator Behind the Curtains

Talk Abstract

The Open Science Grid (OSG) is a distributed computational facility providing resources for High Throughput Computing (HTC) workflows. These resources are located at 125 locations across North America and South America, with minor extensions to Asia, Europe, and Africa. By nature, a distributed computing facility of this extent is a chaotic ecosystem, with scheduled and unscheduled outages, network fluctuations, and resource and policy autonomy. To consolidate this system into a functional operational environment the OSG uses a variety of technical and social techniques. These include central operational services that provide dynamic snapshots of the state of OSG, continuous monitoring and subsequent self-repairing actions, active 24x7 tracking and troubleshooting of critical production issues, automatically managed glide-in based workflows, and high availability operational services. This talk will cover and introduction to the OSG, discussion of the scale and chaotic nature of the environment, and techniques used to provide autonomic production quality service.
