Tech Blog: Apache Airavata Gateway Installation with Ansible

By Eroma Abeysinghe Explanation of Apache Airavata for Hosting a Gateway Apache Airavata is a middleware framework that enables you to manage, execute, and monitor your application workflows on computing resources such as national supercomputers, campus clusters, and computing clouds. Airavata captures and organizes the metadata associated with these submissions, allowing you to share, clone, and resubmit computational experiments. In order to provide a better interface for...

Tech Blog: Designing Data Service APIs for Science Gateways with GraphQL

  By Steven Snyder Explanation of GraphQL GraphQL is a Query Language representing an alternative to REST for data interfaces that is particularly suited to new and evolving systems. As “graph” indicates, and as its provenance at Facebook implies, GraphQL is particularly suited to queries on network data like social graphs. What are the benefits to science gateway developers? What problems does it address? If it’s ever occurred to you that it’d be easier to accomplish...

Tech Blog: Using Keycloak to Provide Authentication, Authorization, and Identity Management Services for Your Gateway

By Marcus Christie Explanation of the Airavata tool, Keycloak: Apache Airavata is middleware that provides abstractions for managing and utilizing computational resources, with an emphasis on running high-performance scientific applications.  Airavata can thus be used to build a science gateway that provides higher-level user interfaces for users to configure, execute, monitor and analyze the outputs of a scientific application. Here are some of the major components in Airavata:...

SGCI Client Cosmic^2 and Its Use of Globus

By Nayiri Mullinix "We knew that the need was there for a cryo-EM gateway, and having the experts at SGCI available made the gateway development process much more efficient since they have the starting technologies to work with and they know how to solve the unique problems facing gateway developers." The COSMIC 2 science gateway offers an easy, web-based platform for structural biologists to determine macromolecular structures using cryo-electron microscopy (cryo-EM)....
