There are several possible ways to implement Open OnDemand (OOD) interfaces for XSEDE resources with different implications for SPs and for XSEDE. This pilot and engineering analysis will: 1) evaluate the various approaches, attempt to prototype the approaches, and recommend which approaches would benefit users in production (by XSEDE or ACCESS), 2) explore pilot OOD applications that integrate with XSEDE enterprise services in support of resource integration or to provide users with useful information (about themselves, the resources they have access to, their allocations and usage, resource outages, active jobs, etc.). This engineering analysis activity is limited to exploring–and possibly trying out–the options and creating a proposed plan for moving forward. When the proposed plan is ready, XCI will coordinate with XSEDE's SMT, and ACCESS awards if possible, on how to proceed.
There are comments for XCI-812 that can be viewed with XSEDE authentication.
