Open OnDemand helps computational researchers and students efficiently utilize remote computing resources by making them easy to access from any device. It helps computer center staff support a wide range of clients by simplifying the user interface and experience.
Open OnDemand is an NSF-funded open-source HPC portal based on OSC’s original OnDemand portal. The goal of Open OnDemand is to provide an easy way for system administrators to provide web access to their HPC resources, including, but not limited to:
See the documentation for installation directions, app development tutorials, and an overview of the components and applications that make up OnDemand. We also have a walkthrough video showing the various components of an Open OnDemand instance available.
Most of the most popular scientific applications as easilier made available to clients via Open OnDemand. A regularly updated list of these is available in the documentation and includes software such as:
Below is a list of organizations that have deployed or are looking at deploying Open OnDemand. Please contact us via the news list if your organization is not on this list and should be included!
There are 2 ways you can have a demo Open OnDemand instance running in minutes:
See a list and comment on community requested features we are already planning on working. Note - you must be logged in to GitHub to see this list.
The Open OnDemand team welcomes and encourages opportunities to collaborate on proposals with members of our community in response a variety of solicitations. Examples of potential collaboration roles our team can have include developing and delivering related client education and training programs, and providing extended support services for software deployment and custom workflow development. Please contact us via the news list if you would like to discuss a potential collaboration.
Please consider contributing to the code repository on Github. Since January 2016 there have been over 8,000 commits to the code base, but we can always use additional development help!
Currently, the primary source of funding for the development of Open OnDemand is via an NSF award. The long term sustainability model for Open OnDemand is to get support from a variety of sources and types as listed the below, with current examples in parentheses. Please free free to contact the Open OnDemand team with additional suggestions or for more details.
Trusted CI , the NSF Cybersecurity Center of Excellence conducted an in-depth vulnerability assessment of Open OnDemand, completing it in December 2018. This assessment included a careful review of the code, increasing our confidence in its security. The Ohio Supercomputer Center addressed the implementation issues (bugs) that were found during this review, producing a more robust revision of Open OnDemand.
In January, 2021, The Open OnDemand team and Trusted CI began another engagement to to accomplish three distinct objectives:Integration of security automation into DevOps flows; Skills transfer for vulnerability assessment; Development of needed security policies, practices, and procedures. Upon completion of this project later in 2021, the Open OnDemand team will be much better positioned with regards to security dev ops.
If you have security concerns or think you have found a vulnerability in Open OnDemand that you want to responsibly disclose, please contact us directly via email on the news list linked above or utilizing the “Report a Potential Security Incident” form on the OSC website.
