Eric Coulter will discuss the process of building a customized virtual cluster using Openstack, Ansible and SLURM, the benefits of elastic resources for gateway groups, and how this can be applied to extend the compute resources available to traditional hardware systems. Eric has worked with PI Sudhakar Pamidighantam (SEAGrid science gateway), PI Amit Majumdar (Neuroscience Gateway) and PI Borries Demeler (UltraScan science gateway) to enable production-ready virtual clusters on Jetstream.

Eroma Abeysinghe will discuss two open source gateway efforts – developing, deploying and operating science gateways for Finite-Element Blood flow solver (SimVascular) and Detection of Regulatory Elements (dReg), working in collaborations with PI’s Alison Marsden and Charles Danko respectively. Eroma will discuss her experiences in developed these gateways based on the open community science gateway framework Apache Airavata and the PI’s early success in community engagement with research and education.
