NEP52-RPI Documentation


NEP52 provides a powerful, scalable batch processing capability to the Research Platform Initiative (RPI). This function is enabled through the following Virtual Machine (VM) images:

  • NEP52-cloud-scheduler.v1 - This VM hosts Cloud Scheduler, a service to auto-provision VMs, together with its HTCondor batch job scheduling environment. In addition, this node provides user login capabilities to allow users to submit their workload to the scheduler for execution, monitor and retrieve their results.
  • NEP52-cvmfs-server.v1 - Provides a software distribution appliance VM that can host and distribute software for multiple VMs and VM types. The VM provided contains only one simple demonstration application and should be considered a template for building efficient, project specific software repositories. Using this server in a project can greatly reduce image sizes and improve image and software propagation efficiency.
  • NEP52-batch-cvmfs-client.v1 - This VM provides a minimal Scientific Linux 6.3 kernel installation for both interactive and batch processing. It has been configured to access software from a CVMFS server and, if instantiated by Cloud Scheduler, to register with a HTCondor batch scheduler and run batch jobs.
