XSEDE Improves Resource Access for Science Gateways by Publishes Standard Resource Descriptions

Aug 19, 2021

For Science Gateways to leverage compute and storage resources they need to be configured with information about how to login, move data, access software, and manage jobs on those resources.

Over the last year the XSEDE Cyberinfrastructure Integration (XCI) team participated in the Science Gateways Community Institute (SGCI) Common Resource Descriptions for Interoperable Gateway Infrastructure project with the goal of enhancing science gateway access to XSEDE's allocated resources. Through this project XSEDE contributed to and adopted the SGCI Common Resource Specification and Inventory (version 1.0).

XSEDE's common resource descriptions can be accessed by Science Gateways at:

More details on this SGCI coordinated effort see the PEARC'21 paper Common Resource Descriptions for Interoperable Gateway Cyberinfrastructure.
