HUBzero is a powerful, open source software platform for creating dynamic web sites that support scientific research and educational activities (hubzero.org). Used by communities ranging from nanotechnology, earthquake engineering, earth sciences, data curation, and healthcare, it is a proven framework for building a science gateway, and a key part of many
organizations’ cyberinfrastructure.

The HUBzero platform provides an application framework for developing and deploying interactive computational tools. It has modules to aid in data sharing and publication as well as a complete user management system and robust group management system to facilitate collaboration across the entire site. The HUBzero Application also offers a comprehensive project management module.

HUBzero can serve as a complete cyberinfrastructure solution for an organization, managing tens of thousands of users, terabytes of data, and can be a onestop gateway to numerous, preconfigured grid computing resources. Its highly integrated services support collaborative research, data and results publication, and the platform can archive research and data for long term access and analysis.

Today, HUBzero is available as an cloud appliance (AMI) on Amazon Web Services’ Marketplace, so it is easier than ever to deploy and maintain a hub for your organization.

This tutorial will provide an overview of this integrated cyberinfrastructure, describe a selected set of of common usage patterns for HUBzero Hubs, and example Hubs of campus CI and science domains. The second portion of the tutorial will provide examples and handson exercises on how to use Amazon Web Services to deploy your own instance of the HUBzero platform and how to configure your AWS HUBzero instance to connect to XSEDE resources, building a web platform to support collaboration, data sharing, and computation at your own institution.
