Access to complex climate modeling and simulation models from NASA’s Earth-observing satellites will be easier after development of a Web-based system from Parabon Computation. The company is working with NASA’s Goddard Space Flight Center (Greenbelt, MD) to help scientists access climate models. The models would be hosted as a Web service so users can access and run them in a Web browser, without the use of a local copy of the application.

altThe system will be built on Parabon’s Frontier Grid Platform, a software solution that aggregates computational capacity of existing IT resources, and delivers it as a flexible and scalable utility. It is secure, OS-agnostic, unobtrusive, and facilitates the development of grid and cloud applications. The system will include a browser-based source code editor, online collaboration, and a virtualized build and runtime environment.

Parabon was awarded the contract through a Small Business Innovation Research (SBIR) grant last year. The company buys excess or idle computing capacity on enterprise systems, and manages the time on a server that allocates the jobs as resources are available.

The Frontier Grid Platform can be configured to run on both dedicated and non-dedicated computers. The Frontier grid infrastructure is made up of several different software components. It supports major operating systems such as Windows and UNIX.
