To all of you starting a new academic year – welcome back! To help you hit the ground running with your research we would like to share some tips and tricks on how to make your experiments on Chameleon more productive.
We are excited to announce the first FABRIC facility port at Chameleon’s University of Chicago site. With this facility port, users can deploy experiments that span Chameleon and FABRIC.
An overview of Chameleon's KVM cloud, and a new experiment pattern demo.
Did you ever wonder what makes your favorite testbed “go”? The answer is CHameleon Infrastructure, or CHI for short – packaged as CHI-in-a-Box so that anybody can run their own testbed. We blogged about it a year or so ago, and a lot can change in a year, so this blog brings you some important updates. Not least, there is now a paper on CHI-in-a-Box so you can join the testbed as an Associate Site!
Learn more about Trovi, Chameleon's experiment repository, and how you can use it to collaborate on experiments and share your work. The blog also covers Trovi's integrations with Zenodo and GitHub, creating a more seamless process for running your experiment - from production to publication.
Learn all about CHI@Edge, Chameleon's edge computing testbed, how to interact with CHI@Edge devices, research projects that came out of our early preview and how to enroll your own device on CHI@Edge! Check out the post for links to an interactive user guide on Trovi, a YouTube video, and how to join the CHI@Edge Google Group to stay up to date with the latest news!
Chameleon has added lots of new and exciting storage capabilites in recent months - learn all about the resources available, how to conduct storage research on Chameleon, and examples of storage experiments being conducted by researchers at the University of Chicago, Carnegie Mellon University, Virginia Tech, and Rutgers University. There's also a fully packaged experiment and accompanying YouTube video that you can run on Trovi to practice with!
Discover Chameleon's newest Associate Site in this interview with the National Center for Atmospheric Research (NCAR). Learn all about the process of setting up an Associate Site, how the NCAR site came about, and most importantly, what resources are available for you to experiment with!
Check out Chameleon Daypass! Enable Daypass for your Chameleon experiment, and let any user, including those without a Chameleon allocation, try running your experiment! You can even include a QR code which links to your experiment in your paper or on a poster. Learn about the latest innovation in reproducibility and how to make it work for you in this blog.
The Chameleon Tickets of the Year blog returns for a second time! To close out the year, we’ve gathered and answered some of the most commonly seen user problems brought to the Help Desk’s attention in 2021. As always, creating a helpdesk ticket is the fastest way to reach the Chameleon support team and get help, though it doesn’t hurt to check our documentation and the Chameleon FAQ as well!
