OSPool Usage Hits Daily Record

Graph showing upward trend of OSG core usage

Researchers utilizing the OSPool are racking up record-breaking numbers. On June 8, the OSPool, which provides computing resources to researchers across the country, went over 1.1 million core hours –– a daily record number. To put this in perspective, one million core hours is equivalent to using 42 thousand cores in just one day. That is close to half the size of some large supercomputing centers. In short, an increasing number of researchers are utilizing the OSG to carry out an incredible amount of computing.

Nicholas Cooley awarded David Swanson Memorial Award

Nicholas Cooley was awarded the 2021 David Swanson Memorial Award at the March 0SG All-Hands Meeting. The memorial was established to honor our late colleage David Swanson who contributed to campus research across the country.

Campus Cyberinfrastructure (CC*) Awardees Contribute Over 292 Million Core Hours in 2020

Campus Cyberinfrastructure Award Recipients Power the OSG and contributed over 292 million core hours to researchers using distributed high throughput computing (dHTC).


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.

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.
