XSEDE has improved the ability for science gateways and other research software providers and integrators to install, advertise, share, and support their own software on XSEDE resources using a feature called Community Software Areas or "CSAs".
Recently released improvements to the CSA feature include:
- Enabling resource operators to opt-in to the CSA feature, and to document important details to potential CSA software owners
- Enable potential CSA software owners to discover which XSEDE resources offer CSAs
- Enable CSA software owners to advertise their software (modules), including how users can get software support
- Enable XSEDE users to discover all software, whether provided by CSA software owners or resource operators, through a single software discovery interface
For more details see XSEDE ecosystem software documentation.
