    88== I. Major accomplishments ==
    9 Built (with the collaboration of the iGENI project (Joe Mambretti and Tom !DeFanti) and the !GLab project (Paul Mueller) the !TransCloud, a transcontinental cloud operating at four sites over two continents, connected by 10  Gb/s connections over the    CaveWAVE, National Lambda Rail, and the Global Lambda Interchange    Facility (GLIF).  Network connectivity is due to the facilities at    !StarLight, !NetherLight, and DFM.  The !TransCloud became   operational February 15, 2011, and is open for use by GENI, FIRE,     and !GLab researchers.

    1111Demonstrated !TransCloud at GEC-10, including a transcoding   service and a prototype query system across distributed clusters.
     
    2323=== A. Activities and findings ===

    25 1. Designed and implemented virtual Hadoop cluster over the   wide-area; specifically, each cluster component ran on a VM, with   VMs residing in physical hosts from HP Palo Alto (OpenCirrus),   Northwestern University and Kaiserslautern (University   collaborators).
    26 2. Built a proof of concept distributed query extension to the Pig declarative query language. Pig was developed for generating mapreduce jobs on Hadoop for the querying of data, and this extension allows for the declaration of multiple sites for the processing of data, along with a site to collate those results.
    27 3. Ran brief performance test using different VM images and found that pure CPU performance (not just Hadoop specific) for each VM is highly dependent on the particular image, even if they fit the typical partitioning of medium, large and extra-large defined by Eucalyptus.
    28 4. Developed  a sub-virtual machine isolation layer for Cloud Programming, based on Google Native Client (!NaCl) and the Seattle project's Restricted Python (!RePy)
    29 5. Brought up and installed a cluster monitoring infrastructure on each !TransCloud cluster, based on the Ganglia cluster monitoring system
    30 6. Designed developed, and demonstrated a monitoring and visualization system for the progress of Hadoop jobs
    31 7. Secured the domain name trans-cloud.net so that !TransCloud slivers will be contained in this name domain.
