Title: Clusters in the Sky: How Canada is Building Beyond IaaS Cloud with Magic Castle

Presenter(s): Jeff Albert, University of Victoria / Compute Canada & Félix-Antoine Fortin, Université Laval / Compute Canada

Description: During this session, we will share the story of the evolution of Canadian IaaS research cloud services. Users need tools that help them marshal computing resources into functional platforms. The solution? Magic Castle. Magic Castle takes general purpose cloud resources and turns them into useful scientific toolkits. We will also discuss how the infrastructure and tools initiatives are evolving together in order to meet the increasingly specialized needs of researchers.
