Abstract:

There is an inherent challenge in creating a shared architecture that facilitates the development and execution of analytics on variegated data for multiple lines of computational research. This is especially true when each line can have a distinct expectation of how the results will be used. This paper discusses a project, BlueRidge, with a proposed architectural model that addresses the specified challenge. BlueRidge intends to be a single unified model of all discrete, necessary components that make up computational threads. Such an architectural model must address 1 how the data will be ingested, 2 how the data and results will be represented, maintained, and warehoused, 3 how the results will be accessed, 4 how issues of analytic orchestration, in particular spanning multiple clouds, will be addressed, and 5 how data lineage is established through provenance. This suggests that many different technology decisions must be made, whether the technologies are internally developed or drawn from existing solutions open-source, free, or commercial. Requirements will be based on the acquired data, the expected activities, the available assets, and ultimately the desired outcomes across the supported research community.
