AIRAVATA: Gateway to Grids & Clouds

A session at ApacheCon North America 2011

  • Surresh Marru

Thursday 10th November, 2011

9:10am to 9:30am (PST)

ABSTRACT: We will introduce the Apache Airavata (Incubating) software suite for Web-based science gateways, which manage the user interactions with computational resources ranging from local clusters to national grids and computing clouds. Airavata provides software to compose, manage, execute, and monitor large scale applications (wrapped as Web services) and workflows composed of these services. Airavata is built on Service Oriented Architecture principals, but scientific workflows provide many interesting and challenging extensions to software designed to meet the requirements of Enterprise services and workflows. Airavata software builds on and extends a wide range of Apache tools, including Tomcat, Axis2, and ODE. Further integrations with Hadoop are being explored.

The presentation will dwell over our decade long experiences in developing, deploying and managing science gateways and the changing trends in this landscape. We believe Airavata and the general scientific software community have much to gain from participating in the Apache Software Foundation (ASF), and our presentation will discuss these benefits and collaboration points.

BIO: Suresh Marru is an active developer of the Apache Airavata project. Marru leads the science gateway efforts within the Extreme Science and Engineering Discovery Environment (XSEDE). He also leads the service oriented architectures and scientific workflow efforts within the Science Gateways Group at Indiana University. More Info- http://people.apache.org/~smarru/
