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. PATh has added to its fabric of services support for capacity credit accounts.
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.
PATh’s Support for Research Computing and the CC* Program
We are here to help with your CC* Proposal (NSF 23-526)! Campuses with awards from the NSF Campus Cyberinfrastructure (CC*) Program play an important role in supporting Open Science. To date, 25 CC* campuses contribute to the processing and storage capacity of the Open Science Pool (OSPool) that is harnessed weekly by more than 2M jobs. Email Us How We Can Help
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.
The Production Services team, as part of the Fabric of Capacity Services (FoCaS), maintains services essential to delivering science using OSG Consortium resources. 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.
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.
