ColdFront is an open source resource allocation management tool built for high performance computing centers that allows the management of Center resources and User allocations to those resources. CCR developed this tool to allow our users the opportunity to request and manage the access they and their students or collaborators have to the many resources in CCR's data center.
ColdFront consists of 3 parts: Projects, Allocations and Resources
ColdFront was designed to be useful in varied HPC environments. The architecture is extensible and supports various back-ends, job schedulers, ticketing system, and is database agnostic. CCR's implementation of this open source product interfaces with Open XDMoD (job metrics), SLURM (job scheduler), OpenStack (cloud), Isilon storage reporting, and FreshDesk (ticketing system).
