Description: Jetstream2 is a user-friendly cloud environment designed to give researchers and students access to computing and data analysis resources on demand as well as for gateway and other infrastructure projects. This is for the Large Memory-specific Jetstream2 resources only. Jetstream2 LM is a hybrid-cloud platform that provides flexible, on-demand, programmable cyberinfrastructure tools ranging from interactive virtual machine services to a variety of infrastructure and orchestration services for research and education. This particular portion of the resource is allocated separately from the primary resource and contains 32 nodes of GPU-ready 1TB RAM compute nodes, AMD Milan 7713 CPUs with 128 cores per node connected by 100gbps ethernet to the spine.

Recommended Use: For the researcher needing virtual machine services on demand as well as for software creators and researchers needing to create their own customized virtual machine environments. Additional use cases are for research-supporting infrastructure services that need to be "always on" as well as science gateway services and for education support, providing virtual machines for students. This particular resource is for those required 512gb or 1tb for their workloads and must demonstrate that need.

User Guide:

Gateway Recommended Use: Jetstream2 provides virtual machines and infrastructure that may be customized for Gateway use that specifically require larger memory totals than standard compute nodes provide. All of the Gateway Support Attributes (including: Community Accounts, Data Collection Hosting for Gateways, Virtual Hosting of Gateways, Database Hosting,Web Service Hosting) are available on Jetstream2 though they require development. Jetstream2 only provides the framework for all of these services. Gateway developers are responsible for building and maintaining these services. Container orchestration and virtual clusters are also available services on Jetstream2.
