Bring the power of HTC to your research

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

For Researchers

New! Complementing our technologies and services, PATh has dedicated compute resources in the PATh facility. Apply for compute credits now!

US-affiliated projects can use an OSG-Connect Access Point to harness the capacity of the Open Science Pool.

For Organizations

Build local HTC capacity with the HTCondor Software Suite. Share computing capacity, data, and software between collaborators and even across continents. Connect or contribute campus computing and data resources into the US national cyberinfrastructure via OSG.

High-throughput computing as an enabler of black hole science

The stunning new image of a supermassive black hole in the center of the Milky Way was created by eight telescopes, 300 international astronomers and more than 5 million computational tasks. This Morgridge Institute article describes how the Wisconsin-based Open Science Pool helped make sense of it all.

NIAID/ACE - OSG collaboration leads to a successful virtual training session

The U.S. National Institute of Allergy and Infectious Diseases (NIAID) and the African Centers for Excellence in Bioinformatics and Data-Intensive Science (ACE) partnered with the OSG Consortium to host a virtual high throughput computing training session for graduate students from Makerere University and the University Of Sciences, Techniques, and Technologies of Bamako (USTTB).

Expanding, uniting, and enhancing CLAS12 computing with OSG’s fabric of services

A mutually beneficial partnership between Jefferson Lab and the OSG Consortium at both the organizational and individual levels has delivered a prolific impact for the CLAS12 Experiment.


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.
