The Resource Allocation Service (RAS) will build on XSEDE’s current allocation processes and evolve to meet the challenges presented by new types of resources to be allocated via XSEDE, new computing and data modalities to support increasingly diverse research needs, and large-scale demands from the user community for limited XSEDE-allocated resources.
Goals, Metrics & KPIs
|User satisfaction with XRAS system||4 of 5||Sustain - Provide excellent user support|
|User satisfaction with allocations process||4 of 5||Sustain - Provide excellent user support|
|Availability of XRAS||99%||Sustain - Provide reliable, efficient, and secure infrastructure|
|Average user satisfaction rating for allocations and other support services*||4 of 5|
Average composite availability of core services**
*This is a composite KPI calculated by taking the average of the metrics for "User satisfaction with XRAS system" and "User satisfaction with allocations process"
**This KPI contributes to the Operations Area Metric "Average composite availability of core services (geometric mean of critical services and XRAS)"
