  journal={2020 IEEE/ACM International Workshop on Interoperability of Supercomputing and Cloud Technologies (SuperCompCloud)},
Exosphere provides researcher-friendly software for managing computing workloads on OpenStack cloud infrastructure. Exosphere is a user-friendly alternative to Horizon, the default OpenStack graphical interface. Exosphere can be used with most research cloud infrastructure, requiring near-zero custom integration work.

Jetstream2: Accelerating cloud computing via Jetstream

Jetstream2 will be a category I production cloud resource that is part of the National Science Foundation’s Innovative HPC Program and will provide a significant platform to further cloud adoption within the US research and education communities.



iPlant atmosphere: a gateway to cloud infrastructure for the plant sciences

The iPlant Collaborative cloud platform, aptly named Atmosphere, is an open-source, robust, configurable gateway that extends established cloud infrastructure to meet the diverse computing needs for the plant science.

Jetstream: a self-provisioned, scalable science and engineering cloud environment

The motivation for proposing Jetstream, the configuration of the Jetstream system as funded by the NSF, the team that is implementingJetstream, and the communities that expect to use this new system are described.

XSEDE: Accelerating Scientific Discovery

XSEDE's integrated, comprehensive suite of advanced digital services federates with other high-end facilities and with campus-based resources, serving as the foundation for a national e-science infrastructure ecosystem.

Automatic Certificate Management Environment (ACME)

This document describes a protocol that a CA and an applicant can use to automate the process of verification and certificate issuance, and provides facilities for other certificate management functions, such as certificate revocation.

Facilitating feedbacks between field measurements and ecosystem models

An ecoinformatic workflow, the Predictive Ecosystem Analyzer (PEcAn), which facilitates model analysis and describes the PEcAn modules that synthesize plant trait data to estimate model parameters, propagate parameter uncertainties through to model output, and evaluate the contribution of each parameter to model uncertainty.
