The purpose of this site is to facilitate researchers in the use of the Snowmass21 Connect service in support of the Snowmass2021 effort. As a user you have access to the following services:

  • A gateway to the Open Science Grid. You can submit jobs to the OSG in order to run and scale computational workflows across the nationally distributed High ThroughPut Computing resource.
  • Access to storage. You can stage input files and collect output from your jobs.
  • An environment for the development of OSG appropriate workflows.
  • Access to installed software and the means to make them available on the grid.
  • A local computing platform for non-grid interactive jobs to either test code or analyse data.
