XSEDE, NSF Call for Cloud Computing Research Use Cases

Sept. 10 — The Extreme Science and Engineering Discovery Environment (XSEDE) and the National Science Foundation (NSF) Office of Cyberinfrastructure (OCI) are conducting a Cloud Use Survey to collect compelling research use cases of cloud computing. Results will be used to formulate a cloud strategy for XSEDE.

The survey is open at, and all researchers who have used the cloud for research or education are urged to share their cloud experiences. Academic and commercial cloud providers are encouraged to share the survey link with their research users and customers to facilitate wide participation.

"I encourage researchers and educators from across the nation to participate in the survey so that the NSF and XSEDE management can better understand cloud use cases and plan accordingly for seamless integration of cloud resources into the XSEDE architecture," said Barry Schneider, NSF OCI program director.

"If you have used a public, private, or commercial cloud resource for research or education, please participate in the XSEDE Cloud Use Survey," said John Towns, PI and project director of XSEDE. "We're eager to learn from your experience and want to better understand the requirements of a wide range of cloud use cases, from burst resources, commonly requested software, data sharing and data archiving to education, outreach and training, and science gateways."

Survey results will be included in an XSEDE Cloud Study report to be published on the XSEDE website.
