      Description

      in 2015 iPlant was rebranded to CyVerse (http://www.cyverse.org/) with a revised mandate to serve all life sciences.
      CyVerse's Data Store is based on technology iRODS (http://irods.org/).
      CYVerse's Atmosphere provides a managing portal for users's VM instances and data spaces called volume. The instance and volume is tied under a project.

      There are other tools and UIs under CyVerse. Data Store and Atmosphere are very close to what we wanted for LSST workspace. It provides many VM instance images preconfigured for life sciences domain-specific tasks. We could definitely learn from this if LSST provides the VM for its users. LSST could supply instance images with specific astronomical tools preconfigured.

      Deciding if the CyVerse could be used as LSST workspace implementation will need much more study and discussion with other teams involved in workspace design and implementation.

      The direction we are going with Jupyter Notebook and JupyterHub most likely preclude us from using CyVerse directly.
