  • 1. Cloud-oriented Projects and TestbedsAlan Sill, TTU US NITRD NCO LSN-MAGIC meeting, Feb. 6, 2013Cloud-Oriented FederatedProjects and Testbeds:Current Status in the US andInternationally, and Future PossibilitiesAlan SillSenior Scientist, High Performance Computing CenterAdjunct Professor of PhysicsTexas Tech UniversityUS NITRD NCO LSN-MAGIC meeting, Feb. 6, 2013
  • 2. Cloud-oriented Projects and TestbedsAlan Sill, TTU US NITRD NCO LSN-MAGIC meeting, Feb. 6, 2013Testing Cloud -OrientedApproaches for Science• A number of publicly accessible forums andsettings are available for general interoperabilitytesting, in addition to the internal mechanismsthat may be set up by US and other agencies.• This talk is intended to inform you as to whatthey are, who runs them, and their currentstatus.• Opinions expressed are mine only.
  • 3. Cloud-oriented Projects and TestbedsAlan Sill, TTU US NITRD NCO LSN-MAGIC meeting, Feb. 6, 2013Background• US Agencies were instructed in 2009 to shift to“Cloud First” by the US CIO.This has also beenextended recently to include a general approach to“digital government”.• Led to the NIST efforts on cloud computing and bigdata exploration for these purposes.• Externally to the US, many similar projects have beenstarted and in some cases, put into practicethroughout the world. OGF has been involved inmany of these efforts.• The purposes of this talk are to give you an update,building on previous presentations, and focus attentionon topics we can take on to move forward on theseand related projects in the US.

  • 5. Cloud-oriented Projects and TestbedsAlan Sill, TTU US NITRD NCO LSN-MAGIC meeting, Feb. 6, 2013FutureGrid: CloudInteroperability Testbed• Public project within FutureGrid organization• Open membership (subject to approval)• No production resources, only short-term testsallowed (order 1-day or less duration)• EC2 (Eucalyptus),Argonne Nimbus,OpenStack among frameworks supported• Private work is allowed; reports requested
  • 6. Cloud-oriented Projects and TestbedsAlan Sill, TTU US NITRD NCO LSN-MAGIC meeting, Feb. 6, 2013US NIST SAJACC• “Standards Acceleration to Jumpstart theAdoption of Cloud Computing” = SAJACC• Focused on use case definition and refinement(especially US Federal government) ==> testableuse cases• Demo code and presentations part of publicrecord• New round recently restarted to refine test cases• Needs a testbed to move forward.
  • 7. NIST CLOUD PROCESS &TWIKIhttp://collaborate.nist.gov/twiki-cloud-computing/bin/view/CloudComputing/SAJACC
  • 8. Cloud-oriented Projects and TestbedsAlan Sill, TTU US NITRD NCO LSN-MAGIC meeting, Feb. 6, 2013“Cloud Plugfest” series• Cooperative community project involving OGF,SNIA, and ETSI.• Formal test tool support from ETSI.• Non-disclosure agreement (optional on the partof contributors) to encourage business andprivate company involvement.• CDMI, OCCI, OVF among standards tested sofar; moving on soon to CIMI and federatedcloud tools.• Just completed 7th iteration; more planned.

  • 10. Cloud-oriented Projects and TestbedsAlan Sill, TTU US NITRD NCO LSN-MAGIC meeting, Feb. 6, 2013EGI FedCloud Testbed• EC-funded project of the European Community• Associated with EGI Federated Cloud taskForce and e-Science/ e-Government initiatives.• Running infrastructure! Production resources,user communities used in projects now.• Use of many standards already incorporated(OGF OCCI, SNIA CDMI, OGF Usage Record,etc.)• Quite compatible with grid infrastructures.

  • 12. Cloud-oriented Projects and TestbedsAlan Sill, TTU US NITRD NCO LSN-MAGIC meeting, Feb. 6, 2013Further Discussion• These are by no means the only such projectsthat can be discussed. In the EC, for example,there are many FP-series funded projects that areintended to produce a variety of runninginfrastructures for both production and testpurposes (FI-Ware, Contrail, Helix Nebula,BobFIRE, etc.); others include NCHC “Cloudzilla”mentioned in previous talk.• In the US, exploration projects such as RedCloudcan help IF brought into a federated environmentthough emerging cloud products and standards.
  • 13. Cloud-oriented Projects and TestbedsAlan Sill, TTU US NITRD NCO LSN-MAGIC meeting, Feb. 6, 2013Conclusions (I)•A variety of test platforms, resources and projects isneeded to pursue use of cloud computing inscientific computing and big data processing in high-scale settings. In terms of ingredients, many arealready in place and suitable for use.•It would be useful US agencies pursue a projectsimilar to the EGI Federated Cloud, perhapsmodeled on it or as an extension to FutureGrid andother US cloud exploration projects.•Similar projects elsewhere are ALREADYexperiencing production or large-scale pilot use.
  • 14. Cloud-oriented Projects and TestbedsAlan Sill, TTU US NITRD NCO LSN-MAGIC meeting, Feb. 6, 2013Conclusions (II)•NIST is doing work to set forth requirements anddesign a cloud reference architecture through itsworking groups, including the “SAJACC” process.Important considerations for security,interoperability, and other considerations mayemerge. We should track the these efforts closelyand try to contribute to their work.•Federated access and common management toolsare important to science user communities and canprovide goals for such a project or projects that arecompatible with other MAGIC goals.
