[RCAC Friday Workshop Series] Overview of the “Geddes Community Composable Platform”
November 6, 2020 2:00pm – 3:30pm
New usage patterns of computing for research have emerged that rely on the availability of flexible, elastic, and highly specialized services that may not be well suited to traditional batch HPC. RCAC is working to enhance and evolve the research computing ecosystem to respond to these needs. We will present an overview of the “Geddes Community Composable Platform”, a Kubernetes-based private cloud that builds upon Purdue’s Community Cluster program to provide cost-effective, highly responsive, and customizable composable computing solutions for domain science and education.
- Overview of the Geddes platform
- Discussion of use cases: databases, science gateways, data processing pipelines, data streaming, distributed data processing
- Details of deployment status and early user access
