Transforming research with high throughput computing

OSG Virtual School 2021 Logo

During the OSG Virtual School Showcase, three different researchers shared how high throughput computing has made lasting impacts on their work.

Scaling virtual screening to ultra-large virtual chemical libraries

Kicking off last week’s OSG User School Showcase, Spencer Ericksen, a researcher at the University of Wisconsin-Madison’s Carbone Cancer Center, described how high throughput computing (HTC) has made his work in early-stage drug discovery infinitely more scalable.

Using HTC for a simulation study on cross-validation for model evaluation in psychological science

During the OSG School Showcase, Hannah Moshontz, a postdoctoral fellow at UW-Madison’s Department of Psychology, described her experience of using high throughput computing (HTC) for the very first time, when taking on an entirely new project within the field of psychology.


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.
