The computing environment at the King Abdullah University of Science and Technology (KAUST) is growing in size and complexity. KAUST hosts the tenth fastest supercomputer in the world (Shaheen II) and several HPC clusters. Researchers can be inhibited by the complexity, as they need to learn new languages and execute many tasks in order to access the HPC clusters and the supercomputers. In order to simplify the access, we have developed an interface between the applications and the clusters,
more &raquo; ... t automates the transfer of input data and job submission to the clusters and also the retrieval of results to the researchers local workstation. The innovation is that the user now submits his jobs to the cluster from within the application GUI on his workstation, and does not have to directly log into the cluster anymore. This article details the solution and its benefits to the researchers.
