The German CMS community (DCMS) as a whole can benefit from the various compute resources, available to its different institutes. While Grid-enabled and National Analysis Facility resources are usually shared within the community, local and recently enabled opportunistic resources like HPC centers and cloud resources are not. Furthermore, there is no shared submission infrastructure available.
Via HTCondor's [1] mechanisms to connect resource pools, several remote pools can be connected transparently to the users and therefore used more efficiently by a multitude of user groups. In addition to the statically provisioned resources, also dynamically allocated resources from external cloud providers as well as HPC centers can be integrated. However, the usage of such dynamically allocated resources gives rise to additional complexity. Constraints on access policies of the resources, as well as workflow necessities have to be taken care of. To maintain a well-defined and reliable runtime environment on each resource, virtualization and containerization technologies such as virtual machines, Docker, and Singularity, are used.
