Hi Doug

  • Matt Paulin (cc'd) is a friend of mine who has a software consulting company who may be able to help you move your academic web site to AWS or another location where it can be maintained indefinitely. Assuming you are still interested in moving forward on that, I'd suggest setting up a call and you two can discuss more in depth.

&best, Scott White

Phone call Eric Stu Dao Jon - Garr E. Updegraff <>

Queries for Jon: could you comment or make suggestions? what means java 'dbean libraries'?

HM=Harry Mangalam AWS Francisco Lopez - jaz on XSEDE - backend remove job submitter - UCI or XSEDE class in China - also BNlearn - centOS --- CentOS wiki --- dbean libraries(?) - depth - port not continued - HM=Harry - to what extent are we submitting jobs (to:) XSEDE is a requirement - if Carly(?) does work that Eric has operated - HB: Comet - problem is dataset is on Comet - Eric - data - not large - might be minimal - --- egress AMAZON Amazon Elastic Compute Cloud (Amazon EC2) provides scalable computing capacity in the Amazon Web Services (AWS) cloud. Using Amazon EC2 eliminates your need to invest in hardware up front, so you can develop and deploy applications faster. You can use Amazon EC2 to launch as many or as few virtual servers as you need, configure security and networking, and manage storage --- getting friendly for universities - Scenic network - no cost - free at Amazon. If allocation spins up a cluster, worth it -- is it worth it for cloudman? - Eric - not updated from Comet - Paul has a newer version. Good news: can up-data on comet itself,replace the file itself - how one does that? Reference point. Simple update code. Paul - will support it - we'll pay for that human? What UCI manpower needs are.

Jon: there's a way to setup as a VM on comet (Eric): schedule with course - if you want ad-hoc... Gateway - jobs to compute ... 2 ways: run on portal post or submit to Comet ... Portal on UCI system - minimal - all go to Comet - run on Amazon - local exec ... larger instance 2 - cloudman - HB: --- HPC system here at UCI --- additional instances - remote execution call. HB preference is upgrade local instance - web front end - posts HPCs or Comet - can arrange scheduler, lead time on the class.

GARR Garr Updegraff <> + 1 Undegrad research computing research support bioinformtaic already - SGE - modification at SDSC runs slush. Written document (Eric) --> will write this. Techical contact - Nancy Wilkins-Diehr. Send to Harry. UCI is the VM. Operations. --- Globus separate --- Stu - lots of universities installing - HB main file transfer... ... distributed --- adding parts of that -- lately - globus sas - sharing - sharing of data - distributed and shared data. TALK TO HM. Groups. Globus OFF - XSEDE DOING THIS, can outsource that -- beside the... - integrate - portal - API - 160 chunks too complex. For integration - can be daunting. RPMS linux rpms toolkit - SAS not there. Sharing stuff -, your users have accounts - at your system thru unix. At UCI - when sharing - delegate to them directly without them having accounts !! outsourcing integration for direct accounts. Globus is a multiconnect (transfer). Not trivial - lots of time and pain. Has been codified.

Document from  Eric - 
XSEDE applications to Comet - if it (Xsede?) runs at UCI - part of the gateway - only certain users able to run - in gateway ... 
New Business - Eric writing Doc. this week. Will send to me -- Paul, Harry.
Report - then handoff to Harry Mangalam can he ask you - Eric would deal with it... a.s.a.p.
Eric is the person to ask in near term ... not a whole lot on time on i...  can answer questions occassionally.
