Services for On Demand Large Volume Experiment-Data Analysis Utilising a Hybrid of Local and Supercomputing and Cloud Technologies
The rise of new experimental data analysis techniques, together with the ever expanding set of computational accelerators, create challenges and opportunities for the facilities IT landscape. At PSI we host various experimental facilities, some of them are capable of producing data streams of the order of multiple GB/s
The Swiss Light Source (SLS) will go under a major upgrade project within the next years. In order to tackle its new requirements, and the present increasing need of burst-computing capabilities, CSCS and PSI started a series of strategical initiatives to pave the way of a new hybrid computational architecture, leveraging the best of local, cloud and SuperComputing approaches. The talk will also present parallel possible synergies within the EU-funded initiative, like Panosc and Expands.
