Overview of SeedMe @ XSEDE Campus Champions Teleconference
In this talk we introduce the SeedMe platform which provides a web-based cyberinfrastructure to enable easy sharing and streaming of transient data and preliminary results directly from computing resources to a variety of platforms, from mobile devices to workstations. The SeedMe platform is open to all researchers and provides web browser based as well scriptable tools for easy integration with ad hoc computation workflows.
Research projects involving scientific computing are now increasingly collaborative and performed on high performance clusters. These clusters offer significant computing capacity and capability to carry out several computation and analysis in parallel or distributed manner. However, the tools and policies on clusters are single user centric and impose restrictions on how processed data and computed results can be accessed and shared with research team. Furthermore, the tools and policies vary on different clusters making the sharing process non-portable and laborious.
