Welcome to FirecREST¶
FirecREST platform, a RESTful Services Gateway to High-Performance Computing (HPC) resources, is a high-performance and reusable framework that integrates with existing HPC infrastructure, thus enabling the access to HPC resources to web-enabled services.
FirecREST provides a REST API that defines a set of HTTP methods through which developers can interact with using the HTTP/REST protocol architecture. Calls to the REST API received are translated into the appropriate infrastructure requests. Among the most prominent services that FirecREST exposes we find authentication and authorization, execution of parallel jobs through a workload manager, file-system operations, data mover, system status, system accounting information, etc.
- Hands On
- HTTP requests
- Obtain credentials
- List the contents of a directory
- Upload a small file with the blocking call
- Run a small simulation
- Upload with non-blocking call something bigger
- Run again the simulation with a bigger file
- Download the output
- Transfer data between filesystems
