Phase I expanded HEPCloud to a single commercial cloud provider with a CMS use case and a NOvA use case.
Phase II builds upon this success by continuing to provision cloud resources, while increasing the reach by focusing on High Performance Computing (supercomputing) facilities. We will work with the National Energy Research Scientific Computing Center (NERSC) to accomplish this goal.
Phase III evolves the facility’s Decision Engine to more complex functionality and moves the facility as a whole into production operations. An additional cloud provider (Google) will be added to the facility resources available for provisioning.
