Louisiana researchers and universities are leading a concentrated, collaborative effort to advance statewide e-Research through a new cyberinfrastructure: computing systems, data storage systems, advanced instruments and data repositories, visualization environments and people, all linked together by software programs and high-performance networks. This effort has led to a set of interlinked projects that have started making a significant difference in the state, and has created an environment…

Distributed Replica-Exchange Simulations on Production Environments Using SAGA and Migol
This paper describes the design, development and deployment of a unique framework for constructing fault-tolerant distributed simulations, and presents details of a newly developed functionality in SAGA - the Checkpoint and Recovery (CPR) API.
HARC: The Highly-Available Resource Co-allocator
It is shown that HARC's design makes it easy for the community to contribute new components for co-allocating different types of resource, while the stability of the overall system is maintained.
Design and Implementation of Network Performance Aware Applications Using SAGA and Cactus
It is shown how SAGA can be integrated with cactus to develop simple, useful and easily extensible applications that can be deployed on a wide variety of distributed infrastructure, independent of the details of the resources.
