Deploying Science Gateways with Apache Airavata

Limit: 50 participants

The authors present the Apache Airavata framework for deploying science gateways, illustrating how to request, administer, modify, and extend a basic gateway tenant to the middleware.

Science gateways provide science-specific user interfaces to scientific applications and data for end users who are unfamiliar with or need more capabilities than provided by command-line interfaces. Frameworks for science gateway provide software that can be used to create science gateways, but these still must be operated and maintained by the gateway provider. Hosted solutions for science gateways are based on frameworks and provide configurable science gateway tenants that can be managed without the gateway provider needing to install and operate any science gateway software, removing the burden of operating a production gateway from the gateway provider.

This tutorial provides an overview of the Apache Airavata software framework for science gateways and focuses on how to request, configure, manage, and customize a tenant gateway on SciGaP.org, the hosted version of Apache Airavata operated by the Cyberinfrastructure Integration Research Center (https://circ.iu.edu) at Indiana University.

  • Audience: Anyone interested in the topic is welcome to attend. Participants will benefit from prior general knowledge of how to execute scientific applications on HPC and Cloud environments, but this is not required. 
  • Skill Level: Intermediate
  • Prerequisite Knowledge: Familiarity with Python, basics of web development, basics of running scientific applications on clusters are required for the hands-on exercises. All interested participants are welcome. Familiarity with Python, Linux, and basics of Web programming will help with the hands-on exercises but are not required. Attendees will be provided with a sample hosted Django tenant to SciGaP services and will have access to a virtual cluster on XSEDE’s Jetstream with pre-installed applications.
  • Technology Requirements and Setup: See https://apache-airavata-django-portal.readthedocs.io/en/latest/tutorial/gateways_tutorial/
