Cloud based computational/storage resources, e.g. Virtual Machines, towards development efforts aligned with the NDSC Charter/Vision
NDS Labs Workbench
Packaged, modular, and easily deployable services currently being explored and utilized towards addressing scientific data needs (e.g. NSF, NIST, NIH efforts such as the DataNETs, DIBBs, SSE/SSI program, etc.)
Broken down into reusable / potentially interchangeable / individually scalable components
Faster deployment (pre-packaged containers vs having to wait for each dependency to be installed)
Once reviewed by the NDSC Steering Committee and Technical Advisory Committee, if approved, they will be given an NDS Labs account. The NDS Labs account will in turn provide access to the underlying computation and storage (e.g. SDSC Cloud, TACC Rodeo, NCSA Nebula) resources as well as the ability to deploy NDS packaged services.
