The Extreme Science and Engineering Discovery Environment (XSEDE) is a single virtual system that scientists can use to interactively share computing resources, data, and expertise. XSEDE replaces and expands on the NSF TeraGrid project.
ACID researcher's Kaya and Youn are members of XSEDE's Requirements Analysis and Capability Delivery (RACD) team, which prepares and supports software and services for XSEDE's federated infrastructure, and enables infrastructure and service providers to federate with XSEDE. Starting from XSEDE prioritized user requirements (use cases), RACD coordinates the engineering work necessary to integrate software and services into production at service providers and campuses, as XSEDE central services, as external vendor services, or on user personal systems. RACD uses engineering best practices and tools, works with external vendors and software partners to minimize integration cost to XSEDE, and aims to maximize return on investment to XSEDE and the NSF.
