The Texas Advanced Computing Center (TACC) has released version 2.0 of the Agave application programming interface (API), a cloud-based science-as-a-service platform for gateway development, and Gateway DNA, a collection of open source components for developing science gateways.
Since its initial release in November 2011, the Agave API has been used by more than 1,000 unique projects worldwide. Version 2.0 will enable the platform to reach a broader community through the introduction of additional services and a new, cloud-based approach to scalability. Agave aims to facilitate innovation by providing a synergestic set of services that developers can use to provide reliable, core science capabilities in their applications.
"Agave gives you an app store full of scientific codes and the ability to run them on shared [high-performance computing (HPC)] systems, Condor pools, and even in the cloud," says TACC researcher Rion Dooley.
Agave has demonstrated the ability to integrate with high-throughput computing systems, allowing users to run code on the Open Science Grid as well as on HPC systems and on public and private clouds.
