CAN-01: Run a Remote Job
|Effort and Costs:||
CAN1.b (Access to Remote Data During Execution) describes the need to access job related files on remote systems during job execution. The architectural response recommends use of GFFS to satisfy this, but GFFS is not universally available on XSEDE compute resources, which often do not support external Internet connectivity. This issue could be resolved by making GFFS and internet connectivity universally available on compute resources. Other solutions are possible, though the technical hurdles appear significant.
