OCTOBER 2013: A*OnePortal NEXT GENERATION SCIENTIFIC PORTAL

Novaglobal announces the immediate availability of the A*OnePortal Scientific Gateway Portal designed for easy access to Grid computing infrastructures and High Performance Computing Clusters (HPCC). The next generation portal is generic and is able to host many different scientific applications. The first product launched by Novaglobal is a Computational Chemistry & Biology Suite comprising of Autodock4, AMBER, NWChem, GROMACS and others.

Development on the portal is accomplished using gUSE/WS-PGRADE which is a web-based generic purpose and workflow-oriented framework. The framework helps to accelerate application portlet development and is also able to address complex simulation workflow scenarios.

SEPTEMBER 2013: Integrated Rule-Oriented Data-management System (iRODS)

iRODS is a community-driven, open source, data grid software solution. It helps researchers, archivists and others to manage (organize, share, protect, and preserve) large sets of computer files. Collections can range in size from moderate to a hundred million files or more, totaling to petabytes of data.

AUGUST 2013: BIOSCIENCE HPCC FOR SECONDARY ANALYSIS

NovaGlobal had provided consultation and successfully built a Bioscience HPCC (High Performance Computing Cluster) for a local research institute that focuses primarily on understanding cellular mechanisms that underlie the development and physiology of plants, fungi and animals

The system comprises primarily of IBM large memory SMPs, IBM Storage and more than 50 Open Source applications. One of the key applications that have successfully been integrated to the HPC cluster is the CLC Genomics Server. Analyses are done from the CLC Genomics Workbench client installed at the workstation and connected to the CLC Genomics Server on the cluster, utilizing the cluster computing resources for more intensive computation.

JUNE 2013: GRID-ENABLED BioPortal

The Centre for Information and Communication Technology – Universiti Teknologi Malaysia has provided us the resources to access the Malaysia Research and Education Network through the generic-purpose science gateway portal developed from the SCI-BUS project.

Some details are as follows:

Portal homepage: http://scibus.cict.utm.my
Portal Framework: WS-PGRADE/gUSE version 3.5.5
Programming API: ASM 3.4
Operating System: Scientific Linux 6.2
Grid Middleware: EMI Middleware UI version 2.0
Applications: Autodock4, AMBER, NWChem, GROMACS, FastDNAml, Phase, Clustalw-MPI, BLAST, Muscle, OpenFOAM, Blender, Multidendrograms, PROSPECT, NAMD, Glimmer

APRIL 2013: NVG GEN 2 BioPortal

NovaGlobal has successfully completed a HPC Bioportal project with a university in Malaysia. The HPC Bioportal is a grid portal providing the web interface with Torque as the resource manager to access the bio-applications. It is running on the grid framework (Gridsphere) and developed by Java, JSP and JavaScript. Each application’s GUI is developed as a portlet on Portal.

The authenticating and authorization are controlled via Centralized Authentication System (LDAP) account. After the user logs on to the portal with the correct LDAP username and password, he or she is able to proceed using the applications without further authentication.

Secure FTP protocol is used to connect to Linux HPC cluster from the Portal system. The web based file manager is implemented and users can browse, create, delete, modify, upload, zip, unzip and download files/folder from file manager. Users can also monitor job statuses from the Job Manager and can view/download output from the file manager.
