This capability is currently supported by the following 7 components:
Component User facing? Component’s role in the capability
Globus Connect Personal yes Globus Connect Personal is a software application that researchers can install on their own computer systems (desktop or laptop computers) to allow the data they produce at scientific instruments, research facilities, and/or XSEDE resources to be transferred to their systems for further storage and use.
Globus Connect Server no Globus Connect Server is a software package that the operators of scientific instruments can install on their systems to enable researchers to transfer data from the instrument to XSEDE resources for analysis. It is also used by campus and research facility IT administrators to enable researchers to deliver the data produced by analysis at XSEDE to their systems for further storage and use.
Globus Transfer yes Globus provides XSEDE's managed data transfer service and provides the primary interface for researchers who need to move data to/from XSEDE resources as described in this use case.
Research Software Portal (RSP) yes The Research Software Portal (RSP) provides features that allow Service Providers (SPs) and researchers to make known the specific data analysis applications and tools that are available for use, either on SP resources or available in other ways. This is an important piece of ensuring that the right data analysis applications are available on resources for use as described in this use case.
Service Provider Batch Processing Services yes The batch processing systems provided by XSEDE Service Providers (SPs) are the front-end interface to most of XSEDE's computational power. This is how the researcher submits data analysis tasks for processing.
XSEDE Single Sign-On Hub yes The XSEDE Single Sign-On Hub (SSO Hub) provides a common mechanism for logging on to XSEDE Service Provider (SP) resources, particularly those that offer batch processing, as described in this use case. This is how the researcher logs into the computational resources.
XSEDE User Portal (XUP) yes The XSEDE User Portal is XSEDE's primary Web interface and documentation source. It provides features that allow researchers to discover which data analysis applications and tools are available on each XSEDE resource and how to use them, and this is an important piece of ensuring that the necessary data analysis applications and tools are available on XSEDE resources as described in this use case.
