UABgrid: Down the Road a Piece

Time 04/23/08 08:45AM-10:00AM

Session Abstract

The UABgrid collaboration environment is a high performance computing and web application environment being constructed at the University of Alabama at Birmingham as part of our school, system, and state-wide CyberInfrastructure investments. This construction is leveraging Shibboleth and Globus to provide a uniform identity infrastructure, GridWay metascheduling to harness resources distributed on campus and throughout the region by leveraging 10GigE and NLR connectivity.

This presentation is an overview of progress after more than a year of development. It will address the successes and short comings of our infrastructure, provide a live tour of the environment highlighting the identity management components and areas in progress, and the utility of middleware authorization bundles like myVocs box that provide the identity infrastructure of UABgrid
