Update on SLAC Scientific Computing Service
SLAC’s Scientific Computing Services team provide long-term storage and
midrange compute capability for multiple science projects across the lab.
The team is also responsible for core enterprise (non-science) unix
infrastructure. Sustainable hardware lifecycle is a key part of the central
computing strategy. We continue to push the idea of business models for
computing services as an alternative to one-time hardware investments.
Seamless cloud bursting for high-throughput batch compute is under
development using OpenStack and AWS with VPN.
