The TeraGrid Grid Infrastructure Group (GIG) is responsible for TeraGrid coordination, overall architecture, planning, software integration, and operations. The GIG manages operational processes and improvement projects.
The Software Integration and Information Services team is responsible for providing a coordinated, integrated set of software to the TeraGrid community for use in building TeraGrid resources and services and for use in developing applications that use TeraGrid resources and services.
- Change Control to TeraGrid Kits and service definitions
- CTSSv3 Deployment
- CTSSv4 Deployment
- Production Deployment of MDS4 (Phase 1 - Gaither, Phase 2 - Navarro)
The Data, Visualization and Scheduling area is responsible for coordinating the TeraGrid data services, visualization services and scheduling capabilities.
- Production Deployment of Visualization Portal
- Design of TeraGrid Scheduling capabilities
- End-to-End Data Transfer
Science Gateways signal a paradigm shift from traditional high performance computing use. Gateways enable entire communities of users associated with a common scientific goal to use national resources through a common interface. Science gateways are enabled by a community allocation whose goal is to delegate account management, accounting, certificates management, and user support to the gateway developers.
The User Services team coordinates the user consulting and documentation efforts across the TeraGrid.
The Education, Outreach, and Training (EOT) team coordinates education, outreach and training activities in TeraGrid.

The role of the Advanced User Support (AUS) team is to coordinate and focus advanced support for TeraGrid users. Targeted advanced support is provided to enhance the effectiveness and productivity of scientists and engineers using TeraGrid’s resources. These include porting applications to new resources, implementing algorithmic enhancements, improving the scalability of codes to higher processor counts, optimizing codes to efficiently utilize specific resources, and providing visualization, workflow and data analysis/transfer expertise to the user community.
Three main catogories of advanced support include:
- Advanced Support for TeraGrid Applications (ASTA)
- Advanced Support for Projects (ASP)
- Advanced Support for EOT (ASEOT)
