The FermiCloud project exists to provide on-demand computing and data movement services to the various experiments at Fermilab. We face a dynamically changing demand for compute resources and data movement, which we meet by enabling users to run on our own site, remote grid sites, and cloud sites. We also instantiate on-demand data movement and web caching services to support this remote analysis. In this presentation we will summarize some of our recent research results and outline the challenges of our current research projects.
These include coordinated launches of compute nodes and data movement servers, interoperability with new commercial clouds, idle machine detection, and exploration of distributed storage models.
