State of the Practice:Scalable Data Management for National Facilities Using the Modern Research Data Portal

Presenter: Vas Vasiliadis, Chief Customer Officer

Abstract—Managing the growing data volumes generated by national user facilities and shared instruments is becoming untenable without the use of mechanisms that automate the flow of data among resources and investigators. We describe a common use case in user facilities that motivates the need for such mechanisms, and use a data portal, Petrel Data, as an example that illustrates how data management requirements are addressed at the Advanced Photon Source and the Argonne Leadership Computing Facility.


Exhibitor Forum: Programmatic Automation and Accessibility of Research Data Through Data Portals and Gateways in the Exascale Era

Presenter: Rachana Ananthakrishnan, Executive Director and Head of Products

Abstract—In the exascale era, researchers are confronted with both enormous amounts of data along and the complexities of data-intensive research spanning institutions. Issues such as transfer performance over wide-area networks, reliability of long-running transfers, and secure data sharing among people at different organizations are commonplace. Automation of data processing, including by bridging to various HPC systems, is needed. So too are ad intuitive interfaces for researchers to interact with such systems, in order to ensure that compute resources are well utilized.

Research data management platform services, such as Globus from the University of Chicago, can address many of these complexities, while also allowing research teams developing web-based applications or science gateways to integrate with the platform seamlessly. In this session we will highlight a joint effort between Globus and ALCF, on a portal called Petrel, that manages multiple catalogs of data allowing discovery and access. We cover several scenarios to show how Globus addresses issues such as reliable and managed data transfer, scalable and secure search to enable researchers to discover datasets of interest, and integration with data processing pipelines that use a range of compute resources.

Globus is a software-as-a-service and platform-as-a service for research data management, used by hundreds of research institutions and high-performance (HPC) facilities worldwide. Organizations like Globus are assisting developers in the development effort through capabilities such as advanced identity management, single sign-on, search, authorization and automation.
