Rodeo

General cloud computing and storage

Rodeo is a powerful cloud resource that allows for the full customization of computational environments, the ability to archive these environments, and easy access to stored data from any location. Funded by the O'Donnell Foundation, Rodeo offers researchers the ability to easily conduct a variety of scientific activities including modeling and simulation, visualization, data analytics and management.

Rodeo lets users create virtual machines, host data, and provide services like science Gateways. Rodeo is a powerful cloud resource where researchers can easily conduct a variety of scientific activities: modeling and simulation, visualization, data analytics and management. With Rodeo, researchers get to create an environment that suits their research needs and even shares that environment with collaborators. TACC will also be developing domain-specific environments so that users from various scientific communities can easily start using Rodeo.
