Kevin Fox (PNNL)


At PNNL, we are using cutting edge technologies and techniques to enable the Physics communities we support to produce excellent science. This includes Hardware Virtualization using an on premise OpenStack private Cloud, a Kubernetes and Docker based Container system, and Ceph, the leading Software Defined Storage solution. In this presentation we will discuss how we leverage these technologies, along with industry established Grid software such as DIRAC, gridftp, and condor to provide resources to the collaboration.
