Read about how the Computation Institute's Globus provides key services for this new system that lowers the barriers of entry for researchers using high-performance computational tools.


Globus logo

The Discovery Cloud is CI Director Ian Foster's vision to deliver powerful computational tools and methods to every professional and amateur scientist around the world, fundamentally transforming the ecosystem of science. Globus is the first step towards realizing this vision.

OSDC logo

The OSDC is a petabyte scale science cloud for researchers to manage, analyze and share their data and to get easy access to data from other scientists.

Nimbus logo

Nimbus is an open-source toolkit focused on providing Infrastructure-as-a-Service (IaaS) capabilities to the scientific community. Nimbus enables providers of resources to build private or community IaaS clouds, users to use IaaS clouds and developers to extend, experiment and customize IaaS. Combining those tools and capabilities in different ways allows users to rapidly develop custom community-specific solutions.
