Gateways help solve the mysteries of the universe. For example, Galaxy Zoo enlisted non-scientists to help categorize astronomical images, whereas LIGO (Laser Interferometer Gravitational-Wave Observatory) captures signals from distant universes. (Credit: NASA/JPL-Caltech)

An opportunity to adapt your gateway to use the Google Cloud Platform and CloudyCluster

The Cloudify Gateways solicitation seeks proposals from the SGCI Community to enable science gateways to operate in the public cloud. Participants should look to the CloudyCluster team and the Google Cloud Platform representatives to provide their computation and storage requirements for this program. In addition to HPC, additional advanced cloud capabilities such as serverless, AI as a service, and massive-scale databases are encouraged to be included as part of the proposals. 

The overarching goals of the solicitation are to:

  • Extend the reach of gateways beyond their current scope, extending globally to other for-profit and non-profit patrons.

  • Enhance gateways to include the cloud, not only for web, database, HPC and HTC, but other cutting-edge cloud technologies such as AI as a service and scalable query engines.

  • Enable gateway developers to access cutting-edge cloud technologies to help envision future gateway capabilities and broaden coverage to the public cloud.

Read the full solicitation instructions.

Proposals for Cloudify Gateways 2020 are due: September 4th, 2020, at 11:59pm Pacific Time. Selection announcements will be made during the Gateways 2020 conference.

Submit your proposal through EasyChair by selecting the “Cloudify Gateways 2020” track: https://easychair.org/my/conference?conf=gateways2020.
