The current distributed computing resources used for simulating and processing collision data collected by the LHC experiments are largely based on dedicated Linux clusters. Job control and software provisioning mechanisms are quite different from the common concept of self-contained HPC applications run by particular users on specific HPC systems. This poster reports on the development and the usage of a ssh back-end to the Advanced Resource Connector (ARC) middleware to enable HPC compliant access and on the corresponding software provisioning mechanisms.
