Pegasus related talks and topics at the 2018 OSG All Hands Meeting

with No Comments

Last week, Open Science Grid held its annual All Hands Meeting, this time hosted by University of Utah. It was a pleasure to meet Pegasus users and see their talks. A big thank you to those projects and presenters, for sharing their experiences and continued use of Pegasus. Here are some highlights:

  • VERITAS – “VERITAS and Its computational challenges”, presented by Udara Abeysekara, University of Utah. [slides]
  • XENON1T – “XENON1T Computing on OSG – An Update”, presented by Benedikt Reidel, University of Chicago. [slides]
  • Daniel Katz, California State University, Northridge. “Rudin-Shapiro-Like Sequences with Low Correlation” [slides]
  • Ariella Gladstein, University of Arizona. “Inference of Evolutionary History with Approximate Bayesian Computation” [slides]
  • Alex Feltus, Clemson University. “Mining Huge Collections of Genomics Datasets for Genes Controlling Complex Traits from Humans to Legumes” [slides]

The All Hands meeting also covered some technologies which either are supported in Pegasus and/or are of interest to the Pegasus community. For example:

  • StashCache [slides] – A very efficient way to get data to your OSG jobs. Pegasus already has support for StashCache using stash:// URLs.
  • HostedCE. “Expanding the Reach and Scope of Hosted CEs” [slides]. This enables you to access XSEDE allocations from the managed OSG infrastructure and provides an easy approach to run high throughput workloads across XSEDE machines.
