Bring the power of HTC to your research

PATh provides services and technologies for distributed high-throughput computing (dHTC)!

For Researchers

Learn about dHTC and running dHTC work via HTCondor. Run your computational work on the Open Science Pool.

For Campus Computing Providers

Build local dHTC capacity with HTCondor and integrate your institution’s computing and data resources into the nation’s cyberinfrastructure by contributing capacity to the Open Science Pool. Contact us at [email protected] to collaborate on the right options for your desired outcomes.

For Research Collaborations

Share computing capacity, data, and software resources between collaborators and even across continents. Contact us at [email protected] to discuss more.

About

Software Development

The Software Development Team supports, sustains, and enhances the HTCondor Software Suite (HTCSS) to enable the potential of distributed High Throughput Computing. This suite of software tools includes HTCondor, components to build both on-premise HTCondor compute clusters for use by independent academic, commercial, and government campuses, and components to support the federation of processing and data resources across the OSG.

Facilitation Services

Facilitation Services leverage the CHTC-pioneered principles of Research Computing Facilitation to accelerate dHTC uptake by campus researchers and collaborations via the Open Science Federation and OSG Connect, and by campuses and other organizations interested in advancing their own dHTC and dHTC Facilitation capabilities.

Global Infrastructure Laboratory

PATh is committed to openness in the science and institutions we support, in innovation of technologies and methodologies, and in interfaces to the broader ecosystem of NSF-funded CI services, especially as the fabric of coordination services evolves. To facilitate ingestion of ideas into HTCSS, and services into FoCaS, the Global Infrastructure Lab (GIL) tests and evaluate infrastructure software from inside and outside the partnership.

Credit Accounts

The Partnership to Advance Throughput Computing (PATh) project is funded by the NSF to advance High Throughput Computing (HTC) and its impact on research and education. To achieve this goal, PATh operates a fabric of capacity services that ranges from Research Computing Facilitation, to Access Points capable of managing distributed HTC workloads. Starting January 2022, PATh will add to its fabric of services support for capacity credit accounts.

Production Services

The Production Services team, as part of the Fabric of Capacity Services (FoCaS), maintains services essential to delivering science on the Open Science Grid. The Compute Management services allow for sharing of computing resources, provisioning pools of computing resources, job execution management. Data Management services provide for serving and pre-placing data in support of workflows. Additionally, services such as identity management, monitoring, and accounting enhance and secure the fabric.
