Why? Science gateways are a tremendous resource for researchers, educators, and students, but they take time to build. GISandbox is no exception. In the past year we have been working behind-the-scenes to ensure a secure and seamless environment for all users. We have a growing list of pilot users. If you are interested in joining please contact Eric Shook (firstname.lastname@example.org) or leave a comment. We hope to make play.gisandbox.org available for everyone by the end of the year so stay tuned, because we are now sharing all of our exciting work.
1. Jetstream (Indiana University / Texas Advanced Computing Center)https://jetstream-cloud.org
Jetstream will host our Virtual Machine running JupyterHub, which will serve as the primary interface for GISandbox users. 2. Bridges (Pittsburgh Supercomputing Center)https://www.psc.edu/bridges
Bridges will be a primary compute resource, which is designed for non-traditional high-performance computing (HPC) users like the GIScience community. 3. Comet (San Diego Supercomputing Center)http://www.sdsc.edu/services/hpc/hpc_systems.html#comet
Comet will be another primary compute resource, which is also designed for non-traditional (HPC) users. As SDSC likes to say "HPC for the 99 percent". Interested? If you…
