Champions Tech Talk – Feb 2019

Sustainability via On-Campus Teams

Science gateways allow science and engineering communities to access shared data, software, computing services, instruments, and other resources specific to their disciplines and use them also in teaching environments. XSEDE resources are employed by a lot of science gateways and since 2013 more users have utilizing the XSEDE infrastructure via science gateways than via command line. The challenges for creators of specific science gateways are manifold, and the expertise needed for well-designed science gateways is very diverse. The sustainability of science gateways is crucial to serve communities effectively, efficiently and reliably.

The US Science Gateways Community Institute (SGCI), opened in August 2016, provides free resources, services, experts, and ideas for creating and sustaining science gateways. One measure to achieve greater sustainability of science gateways is establishing on-campus teams. Researchers are served more efficiently since the support by experienced developers reduces individual project investments, and a team can bring the diversity of required expertise for a well-designed science gateway. The talk goes into detail about the challenges and the benefits of on-campus groups and of sharing resources across a campus. I will provide successful cases and describe the services of the Science Gateways Community Institute (SGCI) to support the process in building such groups. Additionally, I recommend strategies for using free campus resources.
