XSEDE publishes use cases for managing and using user groups

XSEDE's Cyberinfrastructure Integration area (XCI) recently published new use cases describing how XSEDE personnel and community members need to manage and use group definitions. In its simplest form, a group definition is a list of people that needs to be maintained and used for some ongoing purpose. Typical purposes include access control, communication, and project management.

XSEDE publishes use cases for community-building activities

XSEDE's Community Infrastructure area (XCI) recently published new use cases describing two important community-building features of the XSEDE system: community infrastructure and Service Provider (SP) integration. These two documents describe how the XSEDE system facilitates information sharing and coordination between XSEDE, its Service Providers (SPs), and the research community at large.

Results of Fall 2016 XSEDE UREP prioritization are available

The results of a December 2016 priority assessment conducted by the XSEDE User Requirements Evaluation and Prioritization Working Group (UREP) are now available to the public. The UREP reviewed XSEDE's plans for new system features and descriptions of user needs that had been submitted in 2016 and ranked their importance to the XSEDE user community. XSEDE will use this assessment to guide its system improvement activities in the first half of 2017.

New Service Provider Integration use cases

The XSEDE community has documented a number of use cases describing how Service Providers (SPs) integrate their services and resources with XSEDE. At the present time, the focus for these use cases is on two sub-issues: (1) providing and maintaining availability and status information to the community, and (2) coordinating security-related issues. We expect that more of the resource-integration experience will be documented in the future as time allows.
