Summary

There are two primary challenges in the design of effective and broadly-usable gate- ways: the first revolves around the creation of interfaces that capture existing and future usage modes so as to support desired scientific investigation. The second challenge and the focus of this talk, is concerned about the requirement to integrate the user-interfaces with computational resources and specialized e-infrastructure in an interoperable, extensible and scalable fashion. Currently, there does not exist a commonly usable middleware that enables such flexible integration, viz., of different gateways to a range of distributed and high-performance infrastructures. Some of the challenges that contribute to making production e-infrastructure as a collective resource difficult to use, contribute to the absence of middleware that enables multiple gateways to utilize the collective capabilities. We introduce the SAGA-based, Distributed Application Runtime Environment (DARE) framework, which provides a clear and clean separation of standards-based resources management capabilities from design of a range of application usage modes.
